Mayor Tyler Gandam has issued a statement on the occasion of Philippine Independence Day.

Wetaskiwin has many people and cultures who call our city home. The diverse population is why our city is so fantastic!

Wetaskiwin is proudly home to a large Filipino community — did you know that after English, Tagalog is the most spoken language in the city?!

Each year on June 12, we celebrate Philippine Independence Day with all of our Filipino neighbours. This year marks the 125th anniversary. If you haven’t been to the celebration, I highly recommend you do. The Filipino community is very warm and welcoming. You’ll be dancing, singing, and having a great time — and I guarantee you’ll never go home hungry!

Happy Philippine Independence Day and I wish you a wonderful time.

— Mayor Tyler Gandam
