October 1, 2017 – National Day of the People’s Republic of China – 中华人民共和国国庆节 – 中華人民共和國國慶節

I would like to take this opportunity to extend my best wishes to members of the Canadian Chinese community on the occasion of National Day of the People’s Republic of China.

2017, marks the 68th Anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic of China (PRC).  National Day was declared at three o’clock on October 1, 1949, by Chairman Mao Zedong, in front of a crowd of three hundred thousand people at Tiananmen Square.  During the ceremony, the five-star flag of the People’s Republic of China was raised for the first time.

National Day, celebrated throughout mainland China, Hong Kong and Macau, signals the start of a national holiday which lasts seven days.  Celebrations include a variety of government-organized festivities, including fireworks and concerts.

Toronto is a proud multicultural city that embraces a wide variety of cultures and faiths.  Our city flourishes because of the diversity of people who have chosen to make Toronto their home. As we celebrate Canada 150 this year, it is important to recognize each and every community that plays a part in enhancing Toronto’s social and cultural landscape.

As the Newcomer’s Advocate with the City of Toronto I strongly believe that we must work to together to promote togetherness. We must Respect our newcomer communities. We must Accept our newcomer communities. We should Celebrate our diversity and Embrace our different cultures and traditions, because we are all part of the human RACE.





在中华人民共和国国庆节到来之际,我在此向加拿大华人社区的成员表达最美好的祝愿。     2017年是中华人民共和国(PRC)成立68周年。1949年10月1日三点钟,毛泽东主席在天安门广场于三十万人前宣布中华人民共和国成立。在仪式上,中华人民共和国的五星国旗第一次升起。

中国大陆、香港和澳门同样庆祝国庆, 并有持续七天的法定假日。有各种各样的政府庆祝活动,其中包括烟花和音乐会。    多伦多是一个令人自豪的多元文化城市,包括各种各样的文化和信仰。我们的城市之所以繁荣, 是因为多元化的人们选择以多伦多为他们的家。今年我们庆祝加拿大成立150周年,最重要的是互相赏识,及每一个社团均增强着多伦多社会文化景观。    作为多伦多城市新移民的倡导者,我坚信,我们必须共同努力,促进团结。我们必须尊重我们的新移民社团。我们必须接受我们的新移民社团。我们应该赞美我们的多元化及接受不同的文化和传统, 因为我们都是人。
