Ahmed Hussen – First Somali Elected to Canadian Parliment


Ahmed Hussen is a Somali-Canadian lawyer and political activist.

York South-Weston is going back to its Liberal roots.

NDP incumbent Mike Sullivan was ousted from office once the votes were tallied in the Monday, Oct. 19 federal election with Liberal Party candidate Ahmed Hussen returning the seat to his party.

“I’ve been pounding the pavement learning about the issues and concerns,” said the lawyer to supporters gathered inside Central Bar and Grill. “I’m humbled by the results.”

Ahmed also commended Sullivan for the race he ran and wished him the best.

Also running in York South-Weston were John Johnson of the Green Party, Stephen Lepone of the Libertarian Party, and James Robinson of the Conservative Party.
