On the Occasion of Asian Heritage Month

Dear Friends,

I am pleased to invite you and your family to our Vancouver Quadra Canada Day 150 celebration, starting at noon on July 1st at the Hastings Mill Store Museum, 1575 Alma Street. Join me for food, entertainment and community, as we celebrate this momentous Canada Day! Canada’s 150th anniversary themes of Diversity, Indigenous peoples, Environment, and Youth invite us each to reflect on our country’s unique qualities, and its past, present and future.

The government of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has been working hard for Canadians, and so far these efforts have been paying off: nearly 110,000 full-time jobs have been created in the past four months, the unemployment rate in March was at its lowest in more than 2 years, and Canada had a trade surplus for the first time in years. Further, Canada’s net debt-to-GDP ratio remains the lowest of any Group of Seven (G7) country.

Fiscal policy that drives strong economic growth today creates a brighter future for younger generations. In addition, since 2016 the government has invested hundreds of millions of dollars in clean energy development, grants for higher education, summer student jobs, and success-creating partnerships for students in science, technology, engineering, math and business programs.

We have also introduced legislation to better protect young people from cannabis. Youth and young adult use of cannabis in Canada has been among the highest in the world.  New laws will allow the government to regulate and control this drug and educate Canadians about its risks, building on government’s effective control of drugs like tobacco and alcohol. The new laws aim to prevent underage youth from accessing marijuana, punish those who provide it to them, and remove both the control and the profits from the criminal gangs.

I look forward to your ongoing engagement and input, I hope to see you at our Canada 150 celebration, and I wish you and your family a very happy Asian Heritage Month!

Best regards,

Joyce

我很高兴在此邀请您和您的全家参加我们的温哥华Quadra区加拿大150周年庆祝活动。此活动于7月1日中午开始,地点在1575 Alma街,Hastings Mill Store Museum。请与我一起庆祝这个重要的加拿大国庆日,一起品尝美食,参加娱乐活动和享受社区的欢乐气氛!加拿大150周年国庆的主题是多元化、原住民、环境和青年,这些主题让我们每一个人思考我们国家独一无二的个性,它的过去、现在和未来。

只从上任,贾斯廷⋅特鲁多政府一直濟急在为加拿大人民努力工作,这些努力已经开始收到成效: 在过去的四个月里,我们创造了将近 110,000 个全职工作岗位,三月份的失业率是两年多以来最低的,加拿大多年以来首次出现贸易顺差。此外,加拿大的净债务占国内生产总值的比例仍然是七国集团中最低的。

目前,推动经济强劲增长的财政政策也为年轻一代创造了光明的未来。另外,自2016年以来, 政府已经在清洁能源开发、高等教育助学金、学生暑期工作、以及为科学、技术、工程、数学和商科专业学生提供的“创造成功”伙伴关系计划投入了大量资金。

我们还推出了立法以更好地保护年轻人不受大麻的伤害。加拿大年轻人的大麻使用是世界上最高者之一。新的法律将使政府可以管理和控制这种药品,教育加拿大人有关该药品的风险,建立政府对它的有效控制,就像控制烟草和酒类一样。新立法的目的是防止低龄青年接触大麻,惩治向他们提供大麻者,剥夺犯罪团伙对大麻的控制及从中牟利。

我盼望您的持续参与和建议,我希望在我们的加拿大150周年庆祝活动上见到您。祝您和您的家庭亚洲文化传统月愉快!

 

顺致最美好祝愿!
