The Annual Don Valley West Canada Day picnic was hosted by MPP Kathleen Wynne together with MP Rob Oliphant on July 1, 2016 from 12:00 noon to 3:00 pm.
Many Don Valley West residents gathered in numbers to join in to celebrate our National Day. After rendition of ”O Canada” by MPP Wynne and MP Rob Oliphant, MPP Wynne offered greetings to those present and spoke of Canada’s unique diversity being an excellent example to the world. MP Rob Oliphant and Councillor Burnside also greeted the gathering.
The Korean drummers gave a fantastic performance followed by a performance from their Seniors Choir. This year’s picnic also featured the Ontario athletes competing in the Jubilee Games 2016, Dubai through the Aga Khan Development Network.
There was music and food in addition to exhibition races for kids with prizes, Henna, Face-painting and Bouncy Castle, etc. Many lucky residents won the lucky dip gift baskets. It was great to see so many residents participating in celebration of our National Day.
