It is with great pleasure that I extend warm wishes to the entire Filipino-Canadian community as it celebrates its 114th anniversary of Independence.
As we celebrate this occasion, I am especially thankful for the valuable contributions the community has made to Canada. As you share your culture, heritage, language and traditions with Canadians, we become a richer nation.
On this Independence Day, let’s all reflect on the past accomplishments and look forward to achieving many more.
On behalf of the New Democratic Party of Canada, my entire caucus and staff Happy Independence Day!
