Message from the Prime Minister
I am delighted to extend my warmest personal greetings to everyone attending the National Ethnic Press and Media Council of Canada (NEPMCC) dinner to celebrate Canada Day and Independence Day.
Our national holiday is an important occasion to reflect upon the values that have shaped Canada’s success. Among the most important of these is our commitment to pluralism. Canada draws tremendous strength from our rich cultural diversity.
For decades, NEPMCC has contributed to shaping Canada’s pluralistic values by promoting diversity and integrity in our national media. Your membership should take great pride in their efforts to ensure that all communities across the country have a strong and distinct voice. I offer my warmest thanks for your dedication to building a prosperous and cohesive society.
On behalf of the Government of Canada, I extend my best wishes for a memorable Canada Day and Independence Day commemoration.
The Rt. Hon. Stephen Harper, P.C., M.P.
Prime Minister of Canada
