Below is a statement from Dr Raymond Cho, MPP for Scarborough North on Asian Heritage Month 2021:

Happy Asian Heritage Month! 

Throughout the month of May, we celebrate the rich cultural heritage, and countless accomplishments of, Ontario’s Asian and South Asian communities.

Ontario is blessed to have a rich cultural mosaic.

Our Asian communities are strong, vibrant threads in the tapestry of our province.

Ontario is a very different place from when I first immigrated 54 years ago.

Our province has grown and flourished. We have become a shining example of how people can come from all corners of the world and now call Ontario home.

As we mark the 20th anniversary of the declaration of Asian Heritage Month in Canada, let us also celebrate the incredible diversity that is Ontario’s strength.

Together, we can continue our journey towards a more vibrant, inclusive and compassionate society.

Thank you!
