“It touched me a lot” Ingrid Betancourt on RCI news report

Ingrid Betancourt, a Columbian politician held captive for six years in her own country, was awarded the Quebec National Assembly’s medal of honour in 2009 for her commitment to human rights.

In a Montreal Gazette article, dated September 24, 2009, she describes her love for Canada, and how during her captivity she tuned into Radio Canada International, heard her name and about her ordeal.

“It touched me a lot,” Betancourt said.
