Today, I had the honour to speak in the House of Commons to recognize Black History Month. My riding of Mississauga-Streetsville is a true representation of Canadian values, in that we are rich in diversity and cultural variety.
To mark the significance of Black History Month, on Friday February 2nd, I was pleased to attend an event, hosted by the United Way Peel Region. The primary focuses of the presentation centered on Mental Health Awareness in the black community, in particular, a moving presentation by Stacey-Ann, and her film, titled `Black Stigma`.
I want to pay special recognition to the dedication and hard work of the Black Community Advisory Council and the leadership of the United Way Peel Region. They show compassion and understanding on many important topics, and do exemplary work to support our community.
