There are 36 new peo­ple call­ing them­selves Cana­di­ans in New­found­land and Labrador af­ter a cit­i­zen­ship cer­e­mony in Cu­pid’s Aug. 16. The event, which was held at the Cupids Legacy Cen­tre, was filled with laugh­ter, tears and hugs from fam­ily and friends of those who took the oath. From tod­dlers to se­niors, these new Cana­di­ans came from all over the globe to be­come part of our so­ci­ety as per­ma­nent res­i­dents. This was one of 107 cer­e­monies sched­uled be­tween Au­gust 12 and Aug. 28, and the only one in this province. To con­clude the event, all new Cana­di­ans held on to a 30-foot Cana­dian flag as a part of a flag rais­ing. The flag is one of the big­gest Cana­dian Flags in the province.
