Hansard and Statements by Senator Wilfred Moore (retired)

Hon. Wilfred P. Moore:

My question is also for the Leader of the Government in the Senate. Leader, you just said that your policy is to create conditions necessary to assist First Nations children. Now, our job here in the Senate is to look after our regions, minorities, the most vulnerable, and I want you to explain to me and everybody else here how sending kids to school not properly nourished, with empty tummies, is going to help them focus on education and become more fulsome participants in Canadian society. You tell me that.

Opportunity Is on the horizon once you made it trough childhood. Food nourishes the mind, Most important speach from Honorable Senator Wilfred P. Moore
