Room for All of Us, by Adrienne Clarkson – The Globe and Mail

Room for All of Us, by Adrienne Clarkson - The Globe and MailAdrienne Clarkson’s Room for All of Us is a compilation of 10 discrete stories about a unique category of new Canadians for whom she was a trailblazer. Immigrants of this kind do not abide by the old model, which was far more gradual, more about second than first generation. Nor do such newcomers, whose lives Clarkson lovingly traces, keep their heads down.

On the contrary. Most of Clarkson’s subjects – including Tanzania-born Ismaili Nadir Mohamed, now president and chief executive officer of Rogers Communications, Naheed Nenshi, mayor of Calgary (born in Toronto to Ismaili Muslim immigrants from Tanzania) and Rathika Sitsabaiesan, the first Tamil member of Parliament – are wildly successful.
