To celebrate Mexico’s Independence Day, the Consulate General of Mexico in Toronto hosted a flag raising at the Legislative Assembly. The interns were happy to attend the memorable occasion and were informed that this year is quite significant since it is the 70th anniversary of bilateral relations between Canada and Mexico and the 10th anniversary of the México-Canada Partnership to name a few milestones. Consul General Mauricio Toussaint gave a heartfelt speech and was followed by Liberal MPP for Davenport Cristina Martins. Afterwards we attended our very first reception! It was very humbling to be in such a beautiful committee room filled with many foreign dignitaries and distinguished guests.
