Good afternoon everyone ,

I hope you enjoyed this splendid performance - I certainly did!

My name is Marie - Anne Coninsx, and I am the Ambassador of the European Union here in Canada.

On this day we celebrate the World Press Freedom Day. On the 25th anniversary of the Windhoek Declaration the EU wishes to recall the principle that "the establishment, maintenance and fostering of an independent, pluralistic and free press is essential to the development and maintenance of democracy in a nation, and for economic development".

Dear readers,

Tulips are in full bloom in Ottawa at this time of the year, and so are our numerous activities marking this year's 40th anniversary of the European Union in Canada.

The signing of the Paris Agreement in New York on Friday will be a historic event and an important step towards implementing the world's first global climate deal.

A record number of countries is expected to attend: the whole world is committed to turning the promises we made in Paris into concrete action. The Paris spirit is alive and well – and moving forward.
