On Sunday February 28th, 2021 the Indo-Canadian community hosted a massive “Tiranga & Maple Car Rally” of hundreds of cars to celebrate the growing ties of the two great nations of Canada and India.
The Covid-19 Pandemic has taken millions of lives around the globe, including many unfortunately here at home. In the time of such a crisis, Prime Minister Trudeau and Modi have come together to save millions of lives by approving and supplying millions of vaccines.
We thank India for practicing the ancient Vedic value of ‘Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam’ which means ‘the world is one family’. Supplying vaccines to Canada reaffirms this value and the friendship shared by the two great democracies. We also recognize India’s efforts of meeting a global demand by sharing it’s vaccine supply with over 40 countries from around the world.
We thank the efforts of the Trudeau-led Canadian government for their timely decision to secure Covid 19 vaccines from India. India has promised an immediate supply of 500,000 vaccines in this coming week followed by another supply of 2 million vaccine doses in the coming months. The action will save the lives of countless Canadians.
Today is a proud moment for Indo-Canadians who have made significant contributions to the Canadian society.
Finally we would like to thank the Peel Police and OPP for their timely response to unruly elements who tried to threaten, attack and intimidate peaceful participants. We are confident the authorities will further take actions against those who broke the law. The right to peaceful protest is fundamental to all citizens regardless of ideological differences.
