He represents the riding of Leeds-Grenville in the Gananoque area of Ontario.

Patrick Brazeau

May 25, 2011

The Honourable Patrick Brazeau is our youngest Senator at the age of 36, and also one of our newer Senators having only been appointed in December of 2008. He represents the region of Repentigny in Quebec. Mr. Brazeau was previously the twice-elected National Chief of the Congress of Aboriginal Peoples, a post he left to become a Conservative Senator.

Quite naturally, he is a member of the Senate Aboriginal Peoples Committee and also the Human Rights committee because of his interest in seeing the International Human Rights Code applied to the territories of Canada.

Let’s pray that Mr. Brazeau would know the favour of God on the work that he sets his hands to do especially as he seeks to better the lives of his fellow aborignal peoples. His special interest in youth is an area we ask the Lord to use him in, that he would have the moral strength to be a good role model for young aboriginals all across Canada. Pray also that the Lord will give him good counsellors and strong godly friendships as he has a long career ahead of him in the Senate.
