Vision Docu Offers Glimpse Into 150 Year Old History Of Muslims In Canada
Excerpt from Weekly Voice
A New Life in a New Land offers a window on one of this country's fastest-growing faith communities
They are doctors and lawyers, storekeepers and farmers, journalists and artists.
The first Muslims arrived in Canada more than 150 years ago. In the last decade, their numbers have doubled to nearly 600,000, making Islam one of this country's fastest-growing faiths. Muslim Canadians can now be found in almost every walk of life.
Few minorities, however, have been subject to more ill founded prejudice. Today, public perceptions of the Muslim community are informed by stereotypical images of militant fundamentalists, and alarmist news reports about the recent introduction of Islamic sharia tribunals in Ontario.
On Thursdays, starting July 15 at 10 p.m. ET, VisionTV presents the national television premiere of a series designed to clear away such misconceptions.
A New Life in a New Land: The Muslim Experience in Canada is a three-part documentary that shines a light on the lives and beliefs of an often-misunderstood people.

Restaurant Bar
3452 Kingston Road and Markham Road in Scarborough
Closed on Mondays open from 11:30 to 10 p.m. at night.
Closes early on Sundays around 7 p.m.
Gomantak is the only authentic Goan restaurant in the city. Goa is in the south of India on the coast. Goan food tends to include seafood, coconut milk, and pork. Goan cuisine can be described as a cross between Indian and Thai.
Everything is made fresh, in slow simmered sauces. I enjoyed the Goan Fish Curry in an intense red sauce, Pork Bafado (small pieces of pork in a rich gravy) and Prawn Kaldin (cooked in coconut milk).
The prices are amazing! Everything is around the eight dollar mark. Six of us stuffed our faces, drank a couple of Kingfisher beer and had chai and the damage was about $25 each.
