hopped in the car and turned the radio on and heard Mohammed talking about a range of different matters affecting both this city and often the global community more widely.

I, like most members of this place, have met Mohammed many times over the years and have been invited to many of the events and gatherings he has been involved in organising or helping to promote. Not only have I always appreciated both his personal warmth and enthusiasm but I have particularly appreciated the opportunity that those events have afforded me to meet different members of the community, to hear a range of different perspectives and issues that people are talking about and to learn more about what is happening in this city. Whilst those events are really important in their own right, I think many members of this place have really benefited from the opportunity we have had to go to those events and be exposed to those perspectives and opportunities.

We need more people like Mohammed Ali in our community. I congratulate him on being an inspiration to so many and on receiving this official recognition. For Canberra’s sake, as well as his own, I wish him many more years of fulfilment and success in his contributions to the community.

Question resolved in the affirmative.

The Assembly adjourned at 4.59 pm.
