Bob Bratina, Member of the Canadian Parliament Congratulated the B&H Statehood Day
Among over one hundred groups in the wonderful diversity of our City are residents whose families originated in the historic place called Bosnia and Herzegovina which in itself is a region of great diversity. On November 25th a special commemoration takes place for Bosnians here and all over the world. This is the day Bosnia-Herzegovina achieved contemporary statehood. Its true history goes back centuries, highlighted by its tradition of meeting and mixing different civilizations and cultures which accounts in part for the amazing breadth of its culture-art, music, literature and of course cuisine. Bosnian statehood is entrenched now in law, with all of the accompanying political and social aspects of the modern nation state. I am very proud to represent a political riding whose diversity includes a very strong component of residents whose personal histories began in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
