February 15, 2015 – 50th Anniversary of National Flag Day of Canada

February 15th marks the 50th anniversary of National Flag Day in Canada when we celebrate this enduring emblem of what it means to be a proud Canadian.

On February 15, 1965, Canada’s red and white maple leaf flag flew for the very first time. Governor General Georges Vanier, Prime Minister Lester B. Pearson and thousands of Canadians watched on Parliament Hill as the Canadian Red Ensign, bearing the Union Jack and the Shield of the Royal Arms of Canada was lowered and then, on the stroke of 12 o’clock noon, Canada’s new flag was raised.

February 19, 2015 – 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.
