BEST OF: Amira Elghawaby on becoming an activist

This wasn't the episode we planned to bring this week, but the tragic deaths of four members of a Muslim Canadian family in London just made this feel like the right one to run. Amira Elghawaby began her working life as a journalist, and has moved to working as an activist, first for the National Council of Canadian Muslims and now in the labour movement. You can learn more about her at:
