2017.5.30 安大略省議會早餐歡迎會 Breakfast reception by Legislative Assembly of Ontario at Queen's Park.

Ontario Legislative Building, Toronto – May 30, 2017

The first day after the arrival of His Holiness the 17th Gyalwang Karmapa, Ogyen Trinley Dorje, the entourage accepted an invitation to the Legislative Assembly of Ontario in Queen’s Park.  At 8:30AM on May 30, 2017, the Gyalwang Karmapa had a warm and refreshing breakfast buffet with members of the legislative assembly in the parliament building while several members made welcoming speeches.  Speakers welcomed and thanked His Holiness on this visit, and discussed with him issues in regard to the the environment.  

In return, the Gyalwang Karmapa expressed appreciation towards the legislative members’ invitation, and gratitude towards their care and attention to the local Tibetan community.  His Holiness also requested for government officials to continue giving support the Tibetan population.    

After the morning exchange of speeches, the Karmapa and his entourage toured the chamber for debates and proceedings.  Here, they were again welcomed by various members.  The entourage sat in briefly to witness the debates before concluding their visit to the legislative assembly of Ontario.
