Hon. Michèle Audette: Good afternoon.[Editor’s Note: Senator Audette spoke in Innu-aimun.]
Colleagues, I just want to take a few seconds to thank you for your contribution to our celebrations this month. For Indigenous peoples across Canada, the month of June is a time to celebrate our stories and especially to celebrate our lives today and the youth who have finally put their feet, their moccasins, their running shoes in a place that may seem complicated and difficult. For me, the month of June is also salmon month.
Thank you to all of the youth who participated in the Voices of Youth Indigenous Leaders program.[Editor’s Note: Senator Audette spoke in Innu-aimun.]
You can see that my new Shaputuan is very pleasant, appealing and full of people who want to walk with you every day.[Editor’s Note: Senator Audette spoke in Innu-aimun.]
