March 3, 2018 – E-Newsletter

Dear Constituent,

Last week, our community experienced a tragedy with the loss of little Duncan Xu.

I join you in expressing our condolences and prayers to his family and to the Kennedy Public School Community.  Losing a child is not an easy thing for the family to go through.

In response to the death of Duncan, we are taking more measures to make sure that our school community is safe.  I ask that you please drive safely and obey the traffic laws.  Traffic laws were developed to ensure the safety of drivers, passengers and pedestrians.  There is no excuse to disobey them.  If everyone follows the laws, it will go a long way to ensure that our children can go to and from school safely.

February 23, 2018 – Guyanese Republic Day

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

Republic Day is celebrated on February 23rd marking that day in 1970 when the Burnham government proclaimed Guyana, The Co-operative Republic of Guyana.  The proclamation also severed Guyana’s last significant constitutional tie to Britain.  However, to this day, Guyana remains a member of the Commonwealth of Nations. 

February 16, 2018 – Seollal – Korean New Year

I would like to take this opportunity to extend my best wishes to members of the Canadian Korean community on the occasion of Seollal or Korean New Year.

Seollal is the first day of the lunar calendar and is a family holiday which lasts three days.  Many people return to their hometowns to visit their parents and other relatives.
