Her Commentary: Brendan Browne visits the University of Windsor

Thursday, October 8, 2009 by Samantha Clarke

My professors, Dr. J. Soderland and Dr. D. Briggs, invited all of us M.A. students to his Excellency Brendan Browne's address on The Caribbean Diaspora: Its Impact on Canada – Its Impact on the Caribbean. I was in attendance for the diplomat's lecture addressing the effects of immigration and emigration on Caribbean countries and Canada; a subject I have a deep interest in as I am of Caribbean decent.

Browne is an alumnus of the University of Windsor and it's Masters in Political Science program; the program I'm currently enrolled in. As High Commissioner to Canada for the countries of the Organization of Eastern Caribbean States, Brown represents Grenada, St. Vincent, St. Lucia, Dominica, Antigua and Barbuda, Montserrat, St. Kitts and Nevis.

I thoroughly enjoyed the lecture and identified with several things that he described as the Caribbean culture such as taking care of elderly parents, the use of Moneygram and Western Union (remittance), and Caribana. I learned quite a bit about things I wasn't so familiar with the "brain drain" effect. A phenomena described as the large emigration of people with education and technical skills, as many tend to do leaving there Caribbean origins behind.

It was pleasant to see what an MA can lead to. Let's just say, I have high hopes.

Listen to 11 year old Jonathan McCoy's speech. It's a powerful message; I couldn't have said it better myself.

"Choose words that speak purpose and not defeat."
