  • Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau helped in grilling barbecue at the Taste of Manila event in Toronto on August 20.

    At the event, Trudeau emphasized the importance of Canada’s cultural diversity.

    The Prime Minister did that wearing a barong Tagalog as well.

    The barong tagalog he wore to the Toronto event was the same one he wore during the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Summit held in Manila last November 2015.

    At the Taste of Manila event, the Prime Minister spoke about multiculturalism being a source of strength for Canada.

    “We all understand that our differences are a source of strength, not a source of weakness,” Trudeau told the crowd.

    “When we learn from our neighbors, when we get to know different cultures and different stories and different backgrounds, our communities get richer, our communities get stronger, and the future that we build for our kids gets better and better.”

    In a series of photos posted on Trudeau’s official Facebook page, the Prime Minister is shown joining in the festivities, mingling and taking photos with the crowd.

    He also tried his hand on the grill, helping prepare barbecue at one of the booths.

    The Filipino Canadian community is the third largest group of Asian immigrants in Canada, according to the 2011 National Household Survey.

    Ontario, where Toronto is located, is home to 204,035 Filipino Canadians, based on the 2011 survey.
