Barinder Rasode: A beacon of hope: How the Aga Khan has shaped Canada and the world | Daily Hive VancouverThe world needs hope more now than ever before.

While society as a whole has progressed over the past decades, recent years have taken us down dark paths, and we need light to guide us out. That light can’t come from just one person, but is the collective sum of many working together for the common good.

These change makers should be household names, but they’re often not. They work tirelessly without asking for recognition, letting results speak for themselves. In doing so, their narratives get told by others, changing perception of who they are and what they’re really about.

Early in 2017, Conservative MP Garnett Genius made a notable observation, that it was unfortunate that many Canadians who were not familiar with the Aga Khan would hear his name only in the context of the Prime Minister’s own violations of ethics transgressions.

That a global leader of such incredible moral stature and wide respect should have to be subject to the impact of national political squabbles, is sad development.
