Involving Minority Groups in Building Global Communities Atebe, James


Mission’s mayor, James Atebe, has been dubbed by some as the “Obama of Canada”. Hailing from the Gusii tribe of Kenya, he has managed to become a pillar of Mission. James Atebe has contributed a lot to the city of Mission and continues to do so amidst a wealth of obstacles. Winning his second election by a margin of over 80 percent along with being voted on of the TOP 25 IMMIGRANTS in Canada, he has proved to be the real embodiment of global citizenship and a poster child for immigrant success in Canada. Join us in learning more about Mayor James Atebe’s dedication to both his heritage and his adopted country and how he uses the two to better serve his community. Webcast sponsored by the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre.
