NDC Canada Chapter held an elegant Victory Celebration in Toronto on Sunday, March 22, 2009. The event, dubbed as a â€œDemocratic Victory for Ghanaâ€, was held at 995 Arrow Road, Jamaican Canadian Center, Toronto Ontario. It was attended by members of the Ghanaian Community and delegations from the New Patriotic Party (NPP) and Convention Peoples Party (CPP) and a large delegation from the African and Caribbean Communities in Toronto. The Dinner-Dance also featured a large variety of African dishes and music.
The Guest Speaker, Mr. Bo Amissah who came from Ghana stressed the commitment of the government not to engage in political vendetta but to focus on meaningful and constructive policies that will improve the living conditions of the people.
Mr. Jayson Schwarz, a legal practitioner in Toronto and an active contributor to Ghanaian causes in the community thanked the organizers for bestowing the greatest honour on him to speak at this august occasion. He said that as a friend to most members of the major political parties in Ghana he was gladdened with joy to see Ghana pass another political litmus test. He remarked that he was very fortunate to meet President Atta Mills when he came to Toronto in 2003 as the leader of the opposition party. He said he was looking forward to visiting Ghana to look at areas that he could be of benefit to Ghana.
