What a beautiful day to celebrate our country’s birthday.
Peggy 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. The event began with the swearing in of a couple of dozen new Canadian citizens. It was great to see all the smiles and joy on the faces of everyone. It reminded me of the joy and pride my parents felt when they were given their citizenship so many years ago.
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. The rest of the afternoon provided games and a magician for the kids as well as a long but very friendly line up for a free hotdog served by the hardest working crew of volunteers I have ever seen!! Some beautiful local jazz filled out the rest of the event and even the rain held off and provided an absolutely tremendous day in Toronto’s biggest park reminding us how blessed we are to be in Toronto, in Canada the best country in the world. Thanks to Peggy Nash for a great party!! And thanks to everyone I met for reminding me how cool it is to be Canadian!! As always Enjoy Toronto !!
