The CCMW’s Muslim Youth Canada Project participated in the Governor General’s sixth and last youth dialogue series Can We Talk? in Toronto today with 500 other young leaders from across southern Ontario.
In a unified voice, many young Canadians speaking in English but also French called for new solutions to be explored to make post-secondary education more affordable. Other issues discussed included the high rates of Aboriginal youth-in-care and how to address their needs, as well as how funding arts and culture initiatives led to a 70% drop in crime rates in Winnipeg.
