But apart from that, I would like to say how proud I am to be here among the Greek Community in Montreal. Our compatriots have come here in Canada, have worked within Canadian society, have made us proud.Mélanie, thank you so much for your warm hospitality.It is a great pleasure and a great honour to be received here in Montreal today by Mélanie Joly, the Canadian Foreign Minister, a great friend of Greece. I would like to warmly thank her, not just for her hospitality but also for how she expressed herself because of the tragedy we had in Greece a few days ago in Tempi. In a few minutes, we will go to the Greek Orthodox Cathedral, here in Montreal, and we will pay our respects to the victims of this terrible accident.
