Dr. Mohamed-Iqbal Ravalia's journey from Zimbabwe to Newfoundland to the Canadian Senate

Sunday Edition

Twillingate is a small, rocky island joined by a causeway to the northeast coast of Newfoundland. It's not where you'd think an East Indian Muslim from Zimbabwe would choose to build his life. But then again, being the only brown person in a Newfoundland outport is not what you might think it's like, either. Heather Barrett's documentary "My Own Private Twillingate" first aired in 2009; Dr. Ravalia has just been appointed as an independent Senator.
