It was in October 30, 2018 when finally a decision made/agreed to by parliament to "Adopt" the motion. Since November 30, 2017 until March 19, 2018, there were a total of 19 Members of Parliament recorded as Seconders to the Motion.
...what a better way to recognize the contribution of the Filipinos to the Canadian Society than to designate the month of June as “Filipino Heritage Month” across Canada. The rest is history!
