Greek Canadians celebrated the start of Greece’s War of Independence from the Ottoman Empire in 1821 with a parade headed by Justin Trudeau as its Grand Marshall in downtown Montreal.

The parade has been taking place for over 40 years attracting thousands at the Park-Extension every year.

This year the Canadian Prime Minister was walking among a sea of Greeks that included local Greek groups and organizations from Montreal.

Trudeau, who has excellent relationships with members of the Greek community also attended the event last year.
