Guy Gérard Ngako Chabe Narrator (speaking in French): The most important decision (laughter) … that… that I have ever made is the decision to come to Canada, because I think today that all those who decide to come to Canada, those who come to Canada, they’re blessed. It is a blessing for me, because when you see what is going on in the world … around the world, everything that is happening, you realize that Canada, in all this, is a country of peace, integration, people are welcomed, and there is development, there are opportunities. So, I think … without a doubt … today I feel very proud, my family and I, to have chosen Canada and to be here.
