Town mourns murder victim Melissa Richmond as cops search nearby field

The stabbing death of the bubbly 28-year-old has resonated beyond her devastated family and friends.

30 Masjids in 30 days

By Kenneth Armstrong, SooToday.com | Friday, July 26, 2013

Would you consider Sault Ste. Marie to be a destination for making a personal spiritual journey?

HiMY SYeD is doing just that, travelling across Ontario to observe and report about the Muslim communities he finds from city to city.

HiMY SYeD originally devised his “30 Masjids” project to focus on the 100 Masjids (or Mosques) in the Greater Toronto Area, and in 2011 and 2012 he used public transit and his bicycle to visit as many as he could during Ramadan while blogging along the way.

This year he has expanded the area he covers to sites across the province of Ontario, visiting Sault Ste. Marie Thursday.

He has already visited cities such as London, Chatham and Windsor with plans to travel to Sudbury, Ottawa and Montreal Quebec by the end of Ramadan.
