A statue of Jose Rizal and a mini Luneta park at Box Grove Community Park, in Markham, Ontario, Canada will soon rise.
This is after Senator JV Ejercito led the groundbreaking ceremony for the construction of Jose Rizal Monument.
“During my visit to Canada, I had the privilege to speak before the Markham Filipino-Canadian community during the Philippine Independence Day celebrations which was highlighted by the groundbreaking ceremony of the Jose Rizal Monument in Markham, Ontario, Canada,” Senator Ejercito said.
He thanked Markham Mayor Frank Scarpitti for making the erection of Rizal Monument and “little” Luneta park possible.
“Thanks to the Markham Federation of Filipino Canadians and Fil-Canadian community for the warm welcome,” he added.
