Ontario Premier fasts in solidarity with Muslims

 

Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne joined Muslims in fasting on Wednesday, June 22nd and then took part in the Iftar (fast-breaking meal) with the community at the Sayeda Khadija Centre in Mississauga.

“I am honored to participate in the fast with you,” said Premier Wynne.

“3:30 am is a long time ago,” she said referring to the time when the fast began. “The devotion in Ramadan is not easy.”

“Ramadan is a reflection on giving to those in need,” added the Premier.
