President Rebelo de Sousa, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, and Mayor Olivia Chow unveil Movimento Perpétuo exhibition

It was a great honour to welcome and be welcomed by the President of Portugal Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa, the Prime Minister of Canada Justin Trudeau, the Mayor of Toronto Olivia Chow, and the many other dignitaries who attended the unveiling of the Movimento Perpétuo exhibition at Metro Hall, on September 15.

It was delightful to bring together in the same room many of the people who participated in this project by sharing their artifacts, records, storied, and reflections, and memories; the York University public history students who completed their experiential education practicums with this project; some of the artists; community leaders and government officials; and old friends and new acquaintances. It was a memorable day.
