Mr. Speaker, as we celebrate Black History Month, I rise to recognize Mr. David Green from my community.
Mr. Green is a school board trustee in Brampton West, a bishop, and a youth counsellor. He is also the executive director of the Free For All Foundation, an organization that provides scholarships and youth programs free of charge to families in need.
Our country was built on the passion and dedication of leaders like Mr. Green. I thank Mr. Green for his continued service to our community.
Next week, I will host a round table with black Canadian community leaders from Brampton West to discuss potential solutions for the issues facing black Canadians.
I encourage all Canadians, in Brampton West and across Canada, to remember and celebrate the accomplishments of black Canadians not just this month, but every month
