Philippines Independence Day

Happy Philippines Independence Day!
122 years ago, Filipino patriots bravely declared their freedom from foreign control.
After many years of struggle, the Philippines is now a strong, vibrant democracy.
I was proud to stand in the House of Commons two years ago to vote unanimously with my colleagues to declare June Filipino Heritage Month. So today we celebrate a proud day and a proud month.
I’d like to thank all Filipino-Canadians for your many contributions to Canada.
Mabuhay!

Visiting the Vancouver Kingsway Fire Halls

On behalf of the people of Vancouver Kingsway, I would like to thank the dedicated and hardworking firefighters at halls 13, 15 and 20 for keeping us safe all year round, and particularly during the holiday season.

Today I had the pleasure of delivering Purdy’s chocolates to the fire halls to express our deep appreciation for all they do to keep our communities safe.
