Statement from Ontario PC Leader Patrick Brown Celebrating 150 Years of Confederation

“Joyeuse fête du Canada! Happy Canada Day!

“Today we are celebrating Canada’s 150th birthday, and what a remarkable country we live in.

“A hundred and fifty years! Today we say “thank you Canada”.

“Today, we say we are proud to be Canadian.

“And whether you are celebrating in a park, on a beach, on a porch or on a dock, today we appreciate the incredible country we live in.

“A country that is based on the values of freedom, democracy, the rule of law, respect for others – a country that is getting better and better, generation after generation.

“And on Canada Day, it is also important to understand how we got here, to appreciate those that have made this incredible country what it is, and we should be thankful to those who have served – those who have protected Canada and kept it safe.

“I am celebrating in my riding today of Simcoe North – in beautiful Simcoe County – and there are incredible areas like this throughout the province of Ontario and throughout Canada from coast to coast, and we are all so fortunate and lucky to be Canadian.

“So today, on behalf of the Ontario PC Party, I say “Happy Canada Day”, “Joyeuse fête du Canada”!

“Nous vivons dans le meilleur pays dans la monde!

“Have a wonderful day with family and friends celebrating Canada Day!”
