Our New Prime Minister

23 Oct

A few things have given me cause to be hopeful about the direction of our country, following this week’s election (congratulations Justin!)

Firstly, I feel like I can use his first name. It’s nice to have a young PM that actually seems to be engaged with the Canadian public – shaking hands in a Metro station post election?! Amazing!

And then last night I saw two videos that made my heart sing: Justin joining in some cultural dances – SOCA and (I think) Bhangra! Well!! I smiled. I was happy. I felt hope rising.

It might have been just dancing, but I’m hoping that’s not all it was. I’m hoping it’s a sign of integrity, genuine interest and caring, and a sign of things to come: that we have a Prime Minister who actually acknowledges the diversity that makes this country great, and is committed to creating a Canada where we all feel included and welcomed again.

Fingers crossed!

See more.
