The office of MP Salma Zahid

Hello everyone, Miss Toronto East World here!

On July 4, I got the chance to meet with Salma Zahid, a Member of Parliament (MP) for the Federal Riding of Scarborough Centre.

MP Zahid has declared June as ‘Filipino Heritage Month’ on October 2018. The Filipino Heritage Month will continue to honour the Philippine independence day in June, and to acknowledge the rich culture and the contributions Filipino-Canadians made in the community.

Making June Filipino Heritage Month accross Canada

On Monday, I had the privlege to begin the first hour of debate of M-155, my private members' motion which would designate June as Filipino Heritage Month accross Canada. The second hour of debate will happen on Nov. 8th, with a vote to follow after the constituency week, in mid-November. Mabuhay Canada! Mabuhay Philippines!

Meeting with Salma Zahid

I shared to her about the upcoming competition, and what I could do to help out in the community through my term as Miss Toronto East!

Meeting with MP Zahid was an honour as she acknowledges the growing Filipino-Canadian community and heritage. She happens to be working in the same geographical riding, so I will be looking forward to seeing her in the future!
