Members involved in long-running feud
The former federal justice minister appointed to oversee elections for the Manitoba Islamic Association has quit, leaving the association in "a mess," said the lawyer for the group trying to settle a long-running feud.
Under Warraich's leadership, the Islamic association's administration has changed three times in the past two years. The doctor, who ran unsuccessfully as a Tory candidate in the provincial election, had filed civil suits against a dozen former and current board members, accusing them of defaming him.
It's not what Syrian-born Jude Kasas expected to see.
"I never, ever imagined this could happen in a place like Canada," said the Muslim man. "We're seeing exactly the same thing as in Syria."
