In a communiqué, Mr. Trudeau recalled that at the heart of Canadian history, “there are millions of ordinary people who do extraordinary things”.
He points out that “our land” is that of the indigenous peoples, those who settled there, and newcomers.
The Prime Minister also indicates that Canada has embedded the most cherished values in the Charter of Rights and Freedoms: equality, diversity, individual freedom and both official languages.
