Message from the Governor General of Canada on the Occasion of National Acadian Day

OTTAWA, Aug. 15, 2016 /CNW/ - I am so pleased to mark National Acadian Day, a day celebrating a people that has faced adversity yet continues to thrive because of its rich and distinct culture, as vibrant today as ever.

As the tintamarre gets underway, Acadians will proudly wave the Acadian flag, a powerful symbol of their identity, and joyfully celebrate the richness of a heritage steeped in courage and resilience.  

To all of you adding diversity to our great Canadian mosaic, I wish you memorable festivities!

David Johnston
