He's also an immigation lawyer.
And a Muslim.
And a political activist.
And current National President of the Canadian Somali Congress.
And a former assistant to Dalton McGuinty.

And I didn't think it was possible for things to get worse but then again the talent pool in Ottawa at the moment, especially within the LPC, may very well be the worst it's ever been. Politics tends to attract the most mediocre society has to offer.
In related news Mexican refugee claims jump after visa requirement dropped. I think we can file this one under "Who the f**k didn't see that coming!?" The Conservatives didn't slap a visa requirement on Mexico because they felt their media fueled image as racist meanies needed confirmation. They had adult reasons for doing so. This Liberal government, on the other hand, functions more like a Toronto high-school student council than as the national assembly of a G7 country. It's like the parents are away and they're throwing a house party. And with the appoint of Ahmed Hussen to the immigration file we can expect the whole of the third world to crash it.
F**k this government!
