In the Chamber -- Grant Mitchell's Blog

A sad day

Posted 5/12/2009 by Senator Grant Mitchell


Senator Yoine Goldstein retired yesterday from the Senate as he has now turned 75.

He has served for a little less than four years, but in that short time he has done some great work. He has developed a bill to allow students to declare bankruptcy if they cannot pay off their student loans and a bill to facilitate the export of generic drugs to the developing world. Senator Goldstein has a deep knowledge of law and he demonstrates the great contribution that a fine lawyer can make to the parliamentary process.

And he has always acted as a vigilant protector of human rights.

He will be sorely missed.
