On the International Day of La Francophone we celebrate the richness of the French language and francophone culture.
Right here in Canada we are touched by the diversity of the francophone community. A diversity that is properly ours - with francophone communities in every corner of the country - enriched by francophones of various origins who have settled here. We can participate at home and during our trips abroad in the exchanges that contribute to the constant evolution and creation of francophone culture.
My best wishes to all those celebrating the International Day of La Francophonie.
