“Canada Day is the perfect time to welcome Ontarians of all ages and ethnicities to Queen’s Park to celebrate together. We are a nation of immigrants, each with a story to tell, but we are connected by our love for Canada and Ontario.”
“On Canada Day we have a wonderful opportunity to recognize the diverse talents and backgrounds of the people who make Ontario such a strong and unique part of Confederation. The farmers’ market at this year’s Queen’s Park Canada Day celebrations features a wide variety of fresh and delicious local food grown by farmers right here in Ontario.”
