"The illumination of these monuments, and particularly Niagara Falls, illustrates the place of France in Canada. Even though many French and Canadians have been deprived of it in recent months due to travel restrictions, we are happy to welcome them back to France in the last few weeks" explains Kareen Rispal, Ambassador of France to Canada.
"In Toronto, the economic and cultural capital of Canada, the illumination of the CN Tower in the colors of France is an exceptional event. It demonstrates the vitality of the French community in Ontario and the dynamism of our economic actors whose presence is growing in various sectors: transportation, pharmaceuticals, sustainable development, tech, etc." said Tudor Alexis, Consul General of France in Toronto.
