Parry Sound-Muskoka MP Tony Clement is encouraging Parry Sound-Muskoka residents to take part in the national dialogue on how Canada should celebrate the 150th anniversary of Confederation. Today, the Honourable Shelly Glover, Minister of Canadian Heritage and Official Languages, launched the coast-to-coast-to-coast consultations to seek Canadians’ views on how they would like to celebrate. "As we shape the plans for Canada’s 150th anniversary, we want a celebration that reflects who we are as Canadians, where we came from, and what we can give back," said MP Clement. "The approaching 150th anniversary of Confederation in 2017 is an opportunity for all Canadians to celebrate our shared history and values, which have helped us forge the greatest country in the world." Canada's 150th will be an occasion to build and strengthen the nation and to engage Canadians in shaping their future. The public can participate in this national dialogue by taking part in the online forum at www.Canada.ca/150
Roundtables in communities across the country will be announced at a later date.
