Statements by Members: Wishes Can Come True

I was proud to rise in the House of Commons to recognize Aiden Anderson from London West, whose wish from the Make-A-Wish Foundation was to be Prime Minister for the Day.

TRANSCRIPT:

Mr. Speaker,

For years, the Make-A-Wish Foundation has granted wishes to children with life-threatening medical conditions. Aiden Anderson is a 15 year old boy from my riding of London West and lives with a severe heart condition. Today, his wish is coming true.

Aiden’s wish is to be Prime Minister for the day. He is here today with his family on Parliament Hill, and gets to experience a tour of Centre Block, dining at the Parliamentary Restaurant, holding his own press conference, and of course, meeting the Prime Minister of Canada.

His strength, determination, and courage serve as an inspiration. He sets an example for all of us and demonstrates that no matter your age or the challenge you face, you can, and you will succeed. Congratulations Prime Minister for the day.. Aiden Anderson!

Thank you, Mr. Speaker.
