October 10, 2017 – National Day of the Republic of China – 中華民國國慶

I would like to take this opportunity to extend my best wish to members of the Canadian Taiwanese community on the occasion of National Day of the Republic of China.

National Day, also known as ‘Double Ten Day’, marks the start of the Wuchang Uprising of October 10, 1911 which led to the collapse of the Qing Dynasty in China and the establishment of the Republic of China on January 1, 1912.

In Taiwan, National Day is observed with a flag-raising ceremony at the Presidential Building, parades, speeches and fireworks displays. The Taiwanese Diaspora throughout the world celebrates the occasion with parades and cultural performances.

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.

在中華民國國慶之際,我想借此機會向加拿大臺灣社區的成員表達最美好的祝願。

國慶節,也被稱為“雙十節”,1911年10月10日武昌起義開始,並標誌清王朝崩潰,1912年1月1日中華民國建立。

在臺灣,國慶節可以在總統大樓前觀看升旗儀式,有巡遊、演講和煙花。臺灣華裔在世界各地有慶祝遊行和文藝表演。這是社區生活中很重要的一天。

多倫多是一個令人自豪的多元文化城市,包括各種各樣的文化和信仰。我們的城市之所以繁榮, 是因為多元化的人們選擇以多倫多為他們的家。今年我們慶祝加拿大成立150周年,最重要的是互相賞識,及每一個社團均增強著多倫多社會文化景觀。

作爲多倫多城市新移民的倡導者,我堅信,我們必須共同努力,促進團結。我們必須尊重我們的新移民社團。我們必須接受我們的新移民社團。我們應該贊美我們的多元化及接受不同的文化和傳統, 因為我們都是人。
