They say that home is where the heart is. My heart is in Wadena, Sask., and so is my home. My parents and sister live there, as do her two married daughters. There's a street named after me and a sign on the outskirts proclaiming, "Home of Pamela Wallin." Last year, I spent 168 days in my home province, not just with family but participating in dozens and dozens of events. But I also spent 94 days in Ottawa fulfilling my Senate duties. It is an honour to serve in the Senate, and I will continue to work just as hard as I can in my limited time here to serve the province and the people I love.
