On behalf of the Province of Ontario, I extend warmest greetings to the Hindu Federation as the Living Arts Centre on celebrating India Heritage Festival.
I treasure my long-standing and warm friendship with Ram Mandir. It is my great honor and privilege to be a part of this evening’s celebration. The flamboyant colors of the evening are a depiction of the richness of those cultures that derive their heritage and tradition from India.
On behalf of members of Council and residents of the City of Mississauga, I am please to extend greetings to the organizers and guests of the India Heritage Day.
As part of My Mississauga, India Heritage Day will help to enliven the Living Arts Park with the best that Indian culture has to offer. This event will feature Indian art, vendors, a wonderful cultural program and food and drink from this corner of the world. It please me to see organizations such as the Hindu Federation organize events that showcase the best that Indian culture has to offer.
On behalf of the Government of Ontario, I am delighted to extend warm greetings to everyone attending the India Heritage Festival. As Ontarians, we take every opportunity to celebrate our uniqueness and embrace our tremendous diversity — diversity that provides us with a tremendous competitive advantage on the world stage, and gives us our strength, character and heart. Our province’s Indo-Canadian community is a vital part of that cherished diversity, and has done much to enhance the social, cultural and economic life of Ontario.
