SOCIAL SCENE: High Commission marks Canada Day


Share post:

Canadian High Commissioner Marie Legault threw quite a bash for Canada Day at her official west coast residence last week.

The reception, attended by Governor General Dame Sandra Mason, Prime Minister Mia Mottley and a host of other VIPs and friends of Canada, was held poolside, an ideal setting for the High Commissioner’s speech in which she highlighted aspects of the longstanding relationship between Canada and Barbados.

Mottley’s reply was brief as she said it is Crop Over season and not the time for long speeches. It was an observation welcomed by guests who wasted no time dancing to the swinging tempo of entertainers Slim Williams and Meredith Marshall as they sampled the delicious fare served up for the evening.
