Jennifer’s cousin, Chongyung (Steven) Xu was sworn in as a Canadian citizen this morning. I was glad to go over and watch it happen in Milton at the new Mattamy National Cycling Centre. Quite an impressive installation, as you will see!

It’s now 75 days before the opening of the PanAm and ParaPanAm Games, and there were 75 candidates for the ceremony. Quite a mix of backgrounds: Chongyung noted that he was the only Chinese in the crowd!

His wife and daughter chose not to become citizens at this time. That’s their choice: it is a free country, after all. But I hope they will undertake it, and I will be there to witness that as well!
