Extracted from Hansard - House of Assembly 18 March 2021
I am pleased to have the opportunity today to speak on the South Australian Multicultural Bill 2020. Australia is a nation built on multiculturalism—from our First Nations people, who are our oldest living continuous culture, to welcoming new migrants into our communities and generations who now call Australia home. It is one of the greatest duties as a local member of parliament to attend citizenship ceremonies, as many people in this house have reflected. It is such a wonderful occasion and such a significant time for new citizens to become Australians.
