On Tuesday, November 7th, 2017 I had the honour to rise in the House to recognize a member of our community, Angelita Budao, for her great work in York Centre!
“Mr. Speaker, I recently held an event in my riding where I recognized 15 constituents who demonstrate an incredible commitment to their community.
One of these extraordinary individuals is Angelita Budao. She was nominated for her tireless work with the Friends of Earl Bales Park, Action for Neighbourhood Change, and the First Filipino Canadian Seventh-Day Adventist Church.
Angie’s efforts have been felt throughout her community, bringing youth, families, and seniors together in common cause.
I want to also recognize the other 14 award winners for their contributions to our community. They are volunteers, faith leaders, activists and organisers. During this Canada 150 year, I am proud to honour their contributions every day to making Canada a better place.
Through their hard work, determination, and leadership, these individuals have made a tremendous impact in York Centre, and I ask all Members to join me in recognizing and congratulating them.”
