2009-06-02 08:39 PDTThe RCMP National Security Program in British Columbia is working with its Youth Advisory Council to hold this annual youth conference, Muslims of Tomorrow, with the objective of raising awareness on various issues effecting the Muslim community in Canada.
Muslims of Tomorrow 2009 is dedicated to the issue of Muslims and the Media. Many in the Muslim community in Canada raise the question of whether the Media is biased against their community. Especially, in the post 9/11 era, there has been a lot of concern amongst Muslims on this issue. The RCMP National Security Youth Advisory Council (BC) has invited prominent journalists and a Muslim scholar as guest speakers for this event hoping to provide a forum for Muslim youth where they can
discuss their concerns on this issue.

Dr. Reda Bedeir – Imam Burnaby Al-Salaam Mosque
Kim Bolan – Vancouver Sun
Terry Milewski – CBC News
