Perhaps one of the more emotional debates came from Alberta Liberal House Leader Raj Sherman, who described what to was like to grow up in Alberta coming from another country; what it was like in their first week of living in Canada when all his mother's children came home with black eyes and beatings. And then he said what was the most damaging of all were the names he was called and how these names made him feel shame for the colour of his skin. He went on to speak in support for previous MLAs stating how the criminal justice system was not enough to capture and address the daily activities and events that happen in people's lives because of difference.
