Senator Yonah Martin is a proud Senator of British Columbia and Deputy Leader of the Official Opposition in the Senate of Canada. 
"During the month of May, we celebrate Asian Heritage Month. A time for all Canadians to celebrate the achievements of Asian Canadians throughout our nation’s history and reflect on the positive impact they have had on the betterment of Canadian society. I am acutely aware that I stand on the foundation that they built for me and countless others; and that we are benefiting from their efforts to create a more inclusive society. I am a daughter of the Republic of Korea, the country of my birth that tens of thousands of Canadians defended from communist tyranny during the Korean War; and a daughter of Canada, the country that embraced me and my family in which I belong as a proud and loyal citizen. My parents chose Canada and on my 7th birthday, Canada was my gift and the home I have come to cherish. During Asian Heritage Month and throughout the year, I am grateful to be able to serve my province and my country in my capacity as a Senator. Let us all be filled with gratitude for the Asian Canadian pioneers and role models who paved the way for us to live with the very freedoms and equal opportunities we have today." ~ Sen. Martin
