MPP Mitzie Hunter’s Statement on Chinese Lunar New Year

  • Community Update

“Happy Chinese New Year!

“Over the next two weeks, Chinese communities in Scarborough, Ontario, and around the world will celebrate the Lunar New Year – the year of the Rat. The rat is the first of all zodiac animals, and symbolizes resourcefulness, wealth, and prosperity. 

“Nearly half of all Chinese-Canadians call Ontario home, and the large community in Scarborough contributes to the multicultural fabric that makes our city so vibrant.

I wish all celebrating a happy and prosperous Year of the Rat!”
