"My parents and I came to Canada as temporary residents when I was five years old and I saw the struggles my parents had to obtain permanent residence status when they first came here. I have the greatest respect for the extraordinary spirit that immigrants have. They are a different kind of people – they have the guts, the determination and a strong work ethic that I truly admire.”
