On Saturday February 20, 2016 Khadija Cajee joined Welcome’s Karim Kanji at PodCamp Toronto for a special one our interview in front of a live audience.
Khadija Cajee’s six year old son, Syed Adam Ahmed, has been on Canada’s DHP (Deemed High Profile) for as long as she and her husband, Sulemaan Ahmed, can remember.
During this conversation Karim and Khadija discuss the following:
– How a single tweet led to a series of tweets that led to real public discourse.
– When did Khadija and her family find out their son was on the DHP list?
– How many kids under 18 years old are on the DHP list in Canada?
– What is Khadija doing to shed light on this issue?
– Will kids under 18 ever be off the DHP list?
– What is #NoFlyListKids and how can people become involved?
– What liberties are we willing to give up for the sake of security?
– What is Minister Goodale doing to ensure that children are not on the DHP list?

“Twenty-four per cent year-over-year growth is not surprising, but what it means to us is that if you are a brand and you are trying to reach Canadians, mobile is not optional anymore,” said Jeff Lancaster, CEO of Catalyst Canada.
This past weekend we visited the Museum of Inuit Art in Toronto. You heard right. Toronto is home to the MIA. The Museum is apparently the only one of it’s kind in urban Canada devoted exclusively to art made by the Inuit.
You can find the Museum of Inuit Art at Harbourfront in the Queen Quay Terminal Building on the main floor.
Continued learning is an important thing in our household. Whether it be learning about different cultures or places in our city, you can usually find us soaking in some new knowledge on the weekends.
For example, did you know that the Inuit were encouraged by the Canadian government to learn and sell their art as a result of being forcibly removed from their homeland by that same government?
If you’ve never been to the Museum of Inuit Art, I highly encourage you to do so. Visit them online.
Happy New Year everyone! May 2014 be everything you want it to be and more in 2014.
