April 28, 2019
On Sunday, April 28, Senator Ngo was invited by the Republic of Vietnam Veterans Association of Ontario (VVAO) to another Flag-raising ceremony at Queen’s Park to mark Journey to Freedom Day.
This annual “Thank You Canada and Journey to Freedom Day” served to express gratitude and appreciation to Canada for welcoming with open arms the first wave of Vietnamese refugees in the 1970s and 1980s. It also celebrates the legacy and contributions of the Vietnamese community in Canada.
The official ceremony included the raising of the Canadian flag and the Vietnamese Heritage and Freedom flags in tandem with their respective national anthems. The ceremony also featured formal speeches by community leaders and politicians, namely Senator Thanh Hai Ngo.
