Debates of the Senate (Hansard)

1st Session, 41st Parliament,
Volume 148, Issue 35

Wednesday, November 30, 2011
The Honourable Noël A. Kinsella, Speaker


The Honourable Francis Fox

Hon. Mobina S. B. Jaffer: I rise to say a few words about Francis Fox. Honourable senators have known him as a parliamentarian; I knew him when he was not a parliamentarian. When I first started working for Ted Rogers, Francis was already working for him. Francis took me under his swing and taught me how to work with Ted Rogers, if that is ever possible.

I am from Vancouver and he is from Montreal, but Francis did not look at the diversity or at who I was. He looked at me like a person who was struggling, and he reached out and helped. That is the mark that Francis is leaving in his legacy. Thank you, Francis.
