    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE


    Ottawa, ON The Hon. Pierre Poilievre, Leader of the Conservative
    Party of Canada and the Official Opposition, released the following
    statement on Philippine Independence Day:

    “One hundred and twentyfive years ago, the people of the
    Philippines rose up against colonial rule and demanded their freedom.
    Inspired by a powerful vision of liberty for their people, they
    denounced the exploitation and arbitrary arrests of their former rulers
    and threw off the ‘ominous yoke of domination.’


    “Although the years of the First Philippine Republic were filled with
    many challenges, the 1898 Declaration of Independence would
    continue to encourage generations of Filipinos in their journey
    towards lasting, permanent independence. Today, this document
    continues to serve as a profound symbol of the Philippines’ inspiring
    heritage of freedom.


    “On Philippine Independence Day also known as the Day of
    Freedom we honour the 125th anniversary of the Declaration of
    Independence. We celebrate its incredible legacy, which sustained
    Filipinos as they worked to make their country a champion of freedom
    and democracy in the world.


    “Today also provides each of us an opportunit y to recognize the
    countless contributions of the more than 800,000 people of Philippine

    origin who have brought the gifts of their heritage here to Canada.
    Today, we join Filipinos and Filipino Canadians in the celebration of
    their rich history, traditions, and culture, which have been a source of
    light and life for millions of people all over the world.

    “Happy Philippine Independence Day.”
