“SOLOMON Islands Honorary Consul General to Canada and CITREC Chairman Ashwant Dwivedi has commended Solomon Islands nationals working in Canada labelling them as "modern-day heroes."
“Dwivedi in an address to Solomon Islanders in Canada said that despite the global pandemic of COVID-19, Solomon Islands nationals across Canada have collectively stood together with Canadians.
"Whether it be by rising early in the morning to work tirelessly in dairy farms, or sorting fruits and vegetables in our supermarkets, or working in restaurants, these efforts have ensured that their newly adopted communities have continued to have the valuable daily supplies needed to put food on the table for their families," Dwivedi said.
"I salute you for your continued commitment,” he added.”
