   Deepak Obhrai praises Canada’s ethnic media

CONSERVATIVES Deepak Obhrai low res

 

DEEPAK Obhrai, Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Foreign Affairs and for International Human Rights, made the following statement on Friday in the House of Commons:

“Mr. Speaker, today, I would like to acknowledge the rise of the ethnic media in Canada. It is filling the niche that mainstream media has ignored. It caters to the needs of the ethnic community by not only acting as a link to the home country, but also by highlighting the achievements of members of the ethnic community.

“Some of those involved, like Shan and Jaya Chandrasekar, have been recognized by their entry into the hall of fame.

“To all those from coast to coast who work in the ethnic media, I sincerely thank them for their hard work and dedication, despite numerous barriers and hardship. This media highlights our Canadian diversity.”
