A historic day: At the Senate Standing Committee hearing

I don’t think that I will ever forget this day: a historical one for me.

Weather-wise, it was a miserable day as Sue drove me to the studio. The rain was pouring and for the good driver that she is, she  got me there on time and safely.

We had to wait for a bit but finally, when I was seated next to the Honourable David Omley, past Lieutenant Governor of Ontario, I was ready to roll as they say!

I hope that I did a good job with my presentation but unfortunately I developed a coughing fit right after I was finished with my presentation and had to take a two minute break. David was very helpful as he went out and fetched Sue who brought me some water. That helped and saved the day for me.

I was really glad that the Honourable David was there beside me as he helped to make things more comfortable and much less stressful.  As a person with a vision impairment, it is always uncomfortable when I sit in a room with cameras facing me and others can see me but, in turn, I cannot see them.
