October 13, 2017 – 47th Anniversary of Canada China Diplomatic Relations – 中加建交47周年 – 中加建交47周年


I would like to take this opportunity to extend my best wishes to members of the Canadian Chinese community on the 47th Anniversary of Canada-China Diplomatic Relations. 

Throughout his life, the late Prime Minister of Canada, the Right Honourable Pierre Elliott Trudeau, held a strong and passionate interest in China.

In 1968, Prime Minister Trudeau launched a review of Canada’s foreign policy that placed more emphasis on Canada’s relations with countries in the Asia-Pacific region.  Following the review, the Government of Canada entered into negotiations with the People’s Republic of China which led to the establishment of diplomatic relations between our two countries on October 13, 1970.  A year later, Canada and China set up diplomatic missions.

Prime Minister Trudeau’s official visit to China in 1973 became the foundation for the growth in our bilateral relations.

China is Canada’s second largest trading partner and on a personal level I have visited China over 50 times the last twenty years and have witnessed firsthand the transformation of the country in a supper and business power.

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.





在中加建交47周年之际,我想借此机会向加拿大华人社区的成员表达最好的祝愿。     终其一生,已故的加拿大总理皮埃尔 埃利奥特 特鲁多阁下对中国有着强大而且充满激情的兴趣。     1968年, 加拿大总理特鲁多发起了一个重观加拿大外交的政策, 更强调加拿大与亚太地区国家的关系。重观后,加拿大政府与中华人民共和国进入谈判,在1970年10月13日两国建交。一年后,加拿大和中国互相建立外交使团。     1973年总理特鲁多正式访问中国,这成为两国关系增长的基础。


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。
