Africa, my home:
I am a child of Africa. I have drunk water from the River Nile and swam in Lake Victoria. However, Canada is now my home. For over 40 years, the people, who now are my people, have put clothes on my family’s back and fed my family when we were hungry refugees.
Today, Canadians have given me the amazing opportunity of being part of this great institution, the Senate of Canada. Today, I, as a Canadian, have the opportunity to eat well and use the best health care system in the world. I have lived in one of the most peaceful countries. I truly believe that Canada is the best country in the world. As a result of all these advantages we have, as a Canadian, I believe that we have to do more to ensure the neediest in the world are not overlooked by Canadians
