Urz Heer, Canadian Muslim COVID-19 Task Force

In our penultimate episode before the holidays we wanted this to be a good news story.

Back in January, we did an episode on Peel Region’s struggles with COVID-19.  At that time Peel was an epicentre of the pandemic, struggling to get a handle on the situation.

Today, the region is the top spot in Canada for vaccination rates.  A big factor in that turnaround was the mobilization of various communities to get their people vaccinated.  Groups like the Canadian Muslim COVID-19 Task Force worked to turn the tide on COVID-19.  We invited Urz Heer to the podcast to discuss the hard work that went into achieving this accomplishment.
