Last Monday, over 600 residents of Scarborough attended the ‘Save The Grace’ Town Hall at L’Amoreaux Community Centre. I would first like to give a big THANK YOU to everyone for their attendance at the Town Hall. Your presence and active participation has sent a clear message that Scarborough residents do not accept the closure of the two Departments at the Scarborough Grace and that residents will continue to strongly fight against these closures.

February 24, 2019 – Estonia Independence Day

I would like to take this opportunity to extend my best wishes to members of the members of the Canadian Estonian community on the occasion of Estonia Independence Day.

On February 24th, 1918, the Estonian Declaration of Independence was read in the capital city of Tallinn. This proclamation established the foundation of the Republic of Estonia. Although the Republic was incorporated into the Soviet Union in 1940, Estonia once again gained full independence in 1990. Since then, February 24th has been celebrated both as the day of the first Declaration of Independence, as well as Estonia’s National Day.
