Canada 150th: PM Trudeau Recognizes Canadian Diversity In Speech

By Alistair Reign, July 3, 2017. Alistair Reign News Blog.

Canada’s Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau brought a youthful exuberance to our country’s 150th Birthday party on Parliament Hill, July 1st, 2017.

His message: It doesn’t matter how you got here, because once you arrive, and can proudly say, “I am Canadian“, you will more than likely be welcomed into communities with open arms, and maybe a fresh-baked pie. I know it sounds awfully idealistic, but we are still an old-fashioned nation in many ways.

We remember our roots, and are grateful for our freedoms and privileges. We also recognize that without migrants and refugees, there would be no Canada. In fact, North America would still be solely occupied by its native inhabitants, if Europeans had not “migrated” here in the first place. Speaking for myself, I am only second generation Canadian, as both sets of my grandparents migrated, one side from France, the other from Scotland.

On that note, here is Prime Minister Trudeau’s full speech from Parliament Hill on July 1, 2017.

You can also enjoy the spectacular fireworks show on Parliament Hill, put to some snappy swing music.

When a friend first emailed me a link to the article by J.K.

  • Painted on the side of a building in Bristol, southwest England - home of the celebrated graffiti artist Banksy - the image reprises a 1979 photograph of Soviet leader Leonid Brezhnev and East German President Erich Honecker kissing, which was later turned into a mural on the Berlin Wall. It was commissioned by pro-EU campaign group "We are Europe" as what they call a warning of things to come if Britons vote to leave the 28-member bloc on June 23, as advocated by both Johnson and Trump, the presumptive Republican candidate in November's U.S. presidential election. Johnson is the "Out" campaign's best-known leader and Trump has said Britain would be "better off without" the EU, which he has blamed for Europe's migration crisis.
