May 12, 2013
On May 12th 2013, Senator Thanh Hai Ngo joined members of the Taiwanese community of Montreal at a celebration of Asian Heritage Month. He later attended an event organized by Generation Legacy at Collège Jean-de-Brébeuf. Members of the Vietnamese-Canadian community gathered to support the Boat People Museum project and to remember those who fled Vietnam after the war to seek a new life in Canada. Senator Ngo joined Minister Jason Kenney at the event and offered strong words of advice to the young generation of Vietnamese-Canadians. Senator Ngo strongly encouraged the first, second and third generations to engage in an intergenerational dialogue. The Senator also awarded 20 Vietnamese-Canadian community leaders with certificates of appreciation.
