Thank you for taking the time to visit my website. I trust that you will find it a useful source of information on the Senate of Canada and the work that I do on and off Parliament Hill.
Being a strong proponent for human rights, democracy, and the rule of law, I have attended a number of human rights rallies throughout the country protesting against the oppressive Communist regime in Vietnam, which you can follow in my online Gallery.
As a firm believer in community involvement I have had the pleasure and privilege of attending many wonderful events across the nation and meeting Canadians from all walks of life.
I invite you to navigate my website for additional information about me including a brief biography, my statements in the Senate, news releases, photos, the issues I am working on, and links to other areas of interest.
I believe it is important for Canadians to understand the important work that my colleagues and I are doing at the Senate. Please check back often, as I will be updating this site frequently to provide timely information concerning issues affecting the people of Ontario and all Canadians.
Thank you for visiting!
