AND WHEREAS May 3rd is officially known as Constitution Day in Poland and annually celebrated as Poland's most important civil holiday since it regained independence in 1918;

AND WHEREAS there are over 1 million Canadians who claim full or partial Polish ancestry, of whom over 20 percent reside in the City of Toronto, with many attending our Catholic schools;
