It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to the Mexican Pavilion at the Folklorama festival in Manitoba, organized by the Mex Y Can Association of Manitoba.
As we gather here today, I invite all Canadians to recognize the tremendous contributions that the Mexican-Canadian community has made – and continues to make – to our great country. We know that Canada is a stronger and more resilient nation because of our diversity.

I would like to thank the organizers and volunteers for making this event possible, and all in attendance for coming out to celebrate Mexican culture and traditions.
Please accept my warmest welcome and best wishes for a memorable visit!
