PHILIPPINE FLAG RAISING IN CANADA'S PARLIAMENT HILL
The Flag Raising of the Philippine Flag and the display of a giant flag which all attendees gladly hold and lifted together for display while singing a patriotic song in Filipino language.
This yearly event started last year spearheaded by the first Filipino Canadian Senator Tobias Enverga Jr. of Toronto, Canada with the cooperation of community leaders in the Filipino Canadian community in Ontario.
Today's event was attended by some members of the Parliament of Canada who took their time to joined the Filipino Canadians as they showed their patriotism to their old country and their pride being Filipino Canadians.
