Happy holidays

Mr. Whit Fraser and Governor General Mary Simon are sitting on a park bench, outside, smiling and holding hands, on a sunny fall day.

Like snowflakes, the stories that shape us are unique. Stories of hardships and joys, of culture and belief. In 2023, let us create diverse and inclusive stories for ourselves and for Canada. And let us listen to each other with understanding and respect.

Handwritten signatures of Mary Simon and Whit Fraser.
