City makes proposal for Muslim cemetery

By newsroom

Record Staff – The lack of a Muslim cemetery in Sherbrooke has once again come under the spotlight following the death of an 8-year old girl of Syrian origin in the Magog River Sunday. Although the girl drowned in Sherbrooke and was living in the city, she had to be buried in Montreal on Monday due to the lack of local Muslim burial ground. Radio-Canada, however, is reporting that the City of Sherbrooke has made a proposal to the Association culturelle islamique de l’Estrie (ACIE) for a piece of land to resolve the issue.
