Dr. Mohamed Elmasry, founding national President of the Canadian Islamic Congress, announced today that he will step down, effective January 1, 2009 after leading the organization through its first decade.
He will be joining the board of The Canadian Charger, a newly established mainstream multi-media online magazine using the latest in communications technology. Its public launch is planned for late spring of 2009.
Activists of any stripe tend to be crusty bastards, but at some point you start hindering rather than helping your cause. Mo Elmasry reached that point some time ago.
h/t Five Feet of Fat Chick, who has her uses.
PS. Although Google has no information on any magazine with that title. So, a hoax email?
