India's Independence Day Celebrations at Scarborough Civic Centre

Hindu Cultural Society, Scarborough celebrated India's 67th Independence day at Albert Campbell Square, Scarborough Civic Center on August 15, 2013. Ontario's Premier, Honorable Kathleen Wynne hoisted the flag.

One thing at complete contrast from similar functions held in India is a relaxed atmosphere with no police in sight. I was able to go to as close as two metres to the Premier (Chief Minister) and take this pictures. The Premier, dressed in an Indian attire looked cheereful. She delivered a brief speach, which was followed by a cultural program.
