Toast to Iceland

Your Honour, Lieutenant Governor Janice Filmon, Madam Fjallkona, honoured platform guests, ladies and gentlemen:
The theme for this year’s festival is “discover your land.”
As Canadians, we are celebrating 150 years since Confederation. I am sure I remember coming here to the park for the 100th anniversary (I was only four so I might be mistaken) but what I remember was that we were right over there – and there was cake. I grew up with the Maple Leaf flag and O Canada and live happily in the cultural mosaic that is Canada. I am a proud Canadian.  . . .
