Taiwan celebrated its National Day on Saturday October 10.
For the past decade or so, celebrations of Taiwan’s National Day in Ottawa had been marked with a yearly banquet that drew hundreds of people including many parliamentarians.
Due to CCP Virus and social distancing, this year’s celebration moved online with parliamentarians sending their greetings for this occasion.
The shared values of “democracy, peace, fairness and economic prosperity” connects Canada and Taiwan,” said co-chair of the Canada Taiwan Parliamentary Friendship Group Judy Sgro in her greeting.
Under the current situation “it is more important that Taiwan has its position at the international table,” said Senator Michael MacDonald, co-Chair of the Canada Taiwan Parliamentary Friendship Group, in his greeting, “I will always advocate for Taiwan’s fair and rightful inclusion.”
“More and more people are looking at the example of Taiwan, amazed at Taiwan’s success in combatting the pandemic,” said conservative Member of Parliament Garnett Genuis in his greeting.
Genuis said that Taiwanese people have so much to celebrate, and so much to share with the world!
