Saturday July 7, was a day well spent catching up with constituents at various events throughout Ottawa. It was such a pleasure to meet everyone involved in so many wonderful causes and learn more about the important work they do!

Thank you to Senator Thanh Hai Ngo for his many years of leadership in promoting freedom and Canadian values among all.
