One hundred and fifty Canadians, Monegasques and international friends of Canada came together on July 1 as part of the 150th anniversary celebrations of the Canadian Confederation. The Fairmont Hotel Monte-Carlo was the venue for this unique moment.
In the presence of Prince Albert, Graeme Clark, Minister Plenipotentiary of the Embassy of Canada in Paris, emphasised the quality of bilateral relations and the commonalities between the two countries, especially their cultural diversity.
As a symbol of Canadian attachment to the sovereign, Prince Albert and Liliane Godbout, a member of the Canadian Club of Monaco since its founding, unveiled a portrait of the Princely couple and their twins, made by artist Stéphanie Van Zyl at the request of the Consulate of Canada in Monaco, represented by Marc Devito, Honorary Consul of Canada in Monaco, and the Canadian Club of Monaco, represented by its President, France Rioux.
Later in the evening a barbecue was held with a view of the sea, accompanied by the jazz ensemble of Zhang Zhang, the talented Canadian violinist and a member of the Monte-Carlo Philharmonic Orchestra.
Now more than ever, health is at the forefront of everyone’s minds. On 7th April, we have an opportunity to thank the nurses and midwives of the Principality during World Health Day 2020.
Monaco’s support workers caring for the most vulnerable in the community are making heroic efforts to maintain vital ties to the elderly and disabled, whilst trying to remain safe themselves during the crisis.
Since confinement began on 18th March, the Monaco police force has made 11,000 traffic checks on drivers entering the Principality.
Prince Albert has warned the National Council that its criticism of his government’s management of the Covid-19 pandemic is unnecessarily escalating the tension and uncertainty surrounding the crisis.
