Member of Parliament for Scarborough-Rouge Park

Happy Canada 150!

I am excited to join Canadians in Scarborough and across the country in kicking off a summer of celebration!

As Canadians we can all take pride in how far we have come in the last hundred and fifty years as a nation. Time and time over Canada has been exemplified on the world stage for being a humanitarian nation, for our values, and Rights and Freedoms for all. This key milestone is also a great moment to reflect on our future, and to see how we as Canadians can continue to contribute to our country and, continue on a path of reconciliation with our Indigenous Peoples.

I look forward to celebrating Canada 150 with you at many different occasions this summer, including the Port Union Waterfront Festival and Highland Creek Heritage Festival. Our office also carries a limited supply of Canada 150 Buttons and other sovereigns to help you celebrate your Canada 150 events. The special Canada 150 edition of our Newsletter will be coming to your doors shortly, with a variety of ways to mark Canada 150 in Scarborough-Rouge Park!

I would also like to invite you and your families to join us at our very special Canada 150 – Community BBQ!! Hosted at the Joyce Trimmer Park at Sheppard Avenue East and Conlins Road on Sunday July 9th, 2017 from 1-4PM, we plan for a lively celebration to mark this special anniversary. Please contact my office for more information about the event, or if you are interested in volunteering or performing at the Community BBQ.
