Here is a photo of my first public appearance in the Druze hat from Lebanon I bought in Montreal's fabric district. I wore it at the Writers' Trust Politics and the Pen fundraiser dinner - an amazing event at which I had the opportunity to talk with senators Frank Mahovlich and Francis Fox, among other luminaries. My role was to help enliven the dinner table conversation, and I'm afraid the rare filet mignon and sugarcone ice cream tarts stole some of my attention, but it always enchants me to realize the people we hear about in political news stories are very real and very human. No matter which way the political wheel turns, the people behind the stories have, in many cases, got to their positions by actually caring about what they do. This is one of the things I learned tonight.

Photographs from that evening
I certainly enjoyed photographing you that evening for Hello Canada. You were the most colourful character :)
