Japanese State Visit to Canada – Now in Toronto

  July 11, 2009 at 12:24 pm by

The Emperor and Empress of Japan have moved their state visit to Canada to the city of Toronto.

They visited a hospital in the morning, before meeting with Lt.-Gov. David Onley at the his residence and then with Premier Dalton McGuinty at the Ontario Legislature.

They visited the Japanese Canadian Cultural Centre on Thursday evening and a seniors’ home on Friday morning before leaving for British Columbia where they may be facing a tense situation as a group of veterans and other interested parties are expecting an apology or expression of regret for past wars from the Emperor .

Turnouts to greet the Imperial couple have seemed rather small as compared to other royal visits during their stay in Toronto.
