Liberals recruiting Imam for Montreal byelection

A Quebec imam who touched hearts across the country and around the world with his homily on the 2017 massacre in a Quebec City mosque is considering running in an upcoming byelection for the Liberal Party of Canada.

Hassan Guillet, the spokesman for the Quebec Council of Imams, said he is considering seeking the federal Liberal nomination in Saint-Léonard–Saint-Michel.

A byelection to replace Liberal MP Nicola Di Iorio, who announced his resignation in April, could be announced in the near future. Di Iorio is still sitting as MP.
