Letter from Lebanese-Canadian Mayor Eddie Francis of Windsor, Ontario

Dear Councilman Akouri and Distinguished Guests:

Greetings from your friends and international neighbours in the City of Windsor, and congratulations to all as you gather to celebrate and honour the freedom, sovereignty and resilient people of Lebanon!

It is a pleasure for our city to join you in trusting that a new and prosperous time is developing for Lebanon, which has often been historically and properly referred to as “The Jewel of the Mediterranean”………an ancient crossroads of cultures and civilizations.

I very much regret that I will not be able to join you for the celebration, but I do wish to pass on my own best wishes and those of our City Council and our residents, as you gather for this happy occasion.

May our future together be one of peace, harmony and understanding………in Lebanon and throughout the entire world.

With all good wishes for an evening which points us toward these admirable and most achievable ideals,

Mayor Eddie Francis
