Mark Adler Conservative York Centre, ON

moved for leave to introduce Bill C-675, An Act to designate the month of May as Philippine Heritage Month.

Mr. Speaker, I am proud to stand in the House today to introduce this bill.

Canada is home to one of the largest Filipino diaspora communities in the world. Some 800,000 Filipinos currently call Canada home. I am proud that York Centre is home to one of Canada's largest Filipino communities.

Let us make every month of May Philippine heritage month. I certainly look forward to the support of every member of the House in supporting this bill.
