Canada Day: A time to celebrate our diversity

01 JULY 2016

Fredericton – David Coon, Leader of the Green Party of New Brunswick and MLA for Fredericton South made the following statement in recognition of Canada Day:

“Today is a day we gather together with friends, family and neighbours to celebrate our home - Canada. This is a very special Canada day, as it will be the first for the hundreds of Syrian families and other newcomers who we have welcomed to New Brunswick in the past year.

New Brunswick and Canada have provided safe haven and a new start for generations of people who have helped make our country what it is today. Let us celebrate together, in friendship, with pride and gratitude for what we have, and for what we have to offer those in need.

Happy Canada Day.”
