In honour of Black History Month, I’ve decided to make a post or two about Black politicians in Canada, who are currently in power, in 2016.
in The Canadian Government (Parliament and Senate) there are currently 7 Black Canadian Politicians.
Members of Parliament:
#1: Celina Caesar-Chavannes, Liberal MP
#2: Emmanuel Dubourg, Liberal MP
#3: Greg Fergus, Liberal MP
#4: Hedy Fry, Liberal MP
#5, Ahmed Hussen, Liberal MP
#6, Anne C. Cools, Independent Senator
#7, Don Meredith, Independent Senator
For reference there are 338 seats in the Canadian Parliament and ~100 Senators in the Senate.
