"We need to be more proud of ourselves." - Hussein


"The main thing is the crime.  The sad thing for me to see is a neighbourhood I grew up is always in the news for the wrong reasons, especially with names similar to mine.  We need to be more proud of ourselves and fight for a better future rather than being known for terrorism around the world.  We need to have more community and youth involvement and get our youth off the streets, doing more positive things, playing sports and representing our community in a better light."

~ Hussein, running for city council in Ottawa, Canada
