Many congratulations to Saskatchewan based poet Fred Wah for his recent appointment to the position of parliamentary poet laureate. This is just another achievement in a remarkable career that began in the early 60's. Not only has Wah's own poetry been enormously influential, he has also served as mentor to a generation of some of Canada's most exciting poetic voices. This is an extremely well deserved honour indeed.
