Senator Enverga was delighted to have welcomed Heidee Chua, Mayor of Asingan town in Pangasinan province in the Philippines.

The mayor was in Canada to join the Asinganians of Canada – Greater Toronto Area for their spring celebration at the Malvern Recreation Centre in Scarborough, Ontario on May 13, 2017.

Speaking at the event, Senator Enverga remarked how important it was to maintain ties with our roots, in order to keep the values and traditions of the Philippines alive in Canada, so that we can pass these on to the next generation of Filipino Canadians.

Senator Enverga congratulated the group on a very successful event, and hoped that Mayor Chua and her husband Peter would enjoy the remainder of their visit to Canada.
