LA FÊTE NATIONALE DES ACADIENS August 15, 2000
Ottawa, Ontario The following is the text of a message from Prime Minister
Jean Chrétien on the occasion of La Fête Nationale des Acadiens:
"I am delighted to extend my warmest greetings to everyone celebrating
la Fête nationale des Acadiens.
Today, the Acadian community comes together to proudly celebrate their
dynamism and vitality. And to showcase the success of the men and women
of Acadia - a success born of a daring vision and common values that
have contributed to the building of the Canada that we know today.
This year we are marking the arrival in the early 1600s of the men and
women who established the first French settlement in North America - in
a place that would later become Acadia. Today, almost 400 years after
they came ashore, we can feel pride and emotion as we reflect on the
great Francophone family that they founded.
Aline joins me in wishing all Acadians a most joyous and memorable
celebration." - 30 -
