That just may have been a traditional call of the minaret you heard in Mississauga at sundown Wednesday.
Mississauga mosques will have similar sounds each evening during Ramadan, the Toronto Sun has learned.
Mayor Bonnie Crombie said a compromise passed by Mississauga City Council Wednesday will offer some comfort to the city’s Islamic community with Ramadan falling during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Mississauga’s municipal politicians voted unanimously to temporarily waive current noise bylaw restrictions “for the broadcasting of the evening call to prayer from local mosques and other non-residential buildings regularly used for worship, for the period of Ramadan . . . up to May 24, 2020.”
