Canada Day, July 1 2015, High Park, Toronto

What a beautiful day to celebrate our country’s birthday.
DSC_0717Peggy Nash, MP for Parkdale-High Park hosted her annual Canada Day party and throw an awesome celebration she did! The guest of honour was the leader of the NDP Thomas Mulcair.

It reminded me of the joy and pride my parents felt when they were given their citizenship so many years ago.DSC_0630 DSC_0631 DSC_0647

Afterwards Peggy Nash and Thomas Mulcair took the time to greet and pose with anyone and everyone that asked.When I had my chance to say hello I suggested it was time the men with beards took over his face lit up with a huge smile.
