ICA Event: Showcasing ICA-Kingston as “Community Exhibit” inside City Hall

We are very pleased to inform you about the opening of an exhibit on the Indo-Canadian community in the Kingston region at the City Hall. The exhibit is a part of the “Your Stories, Our Histories” program of the City of Kingston. The exhibit was inaugurated (unveiled) by His Worship Mayor Bryan Paterson on 17th November 2020. Considering ongoing pandemic precautions the event was relatively short and informal and attended by a few members of the ICA executive committee and staff at the City Hall.

The exhibit is a tremendous tribute and a celebration of the Indo-Canadian community’s heritage and significance to the Kingston region. Please do visit this beautiful exhibit, it is prominently mounted in the Clerk’s Corridor in the City Hall.

Contrary to popular belief, Lorem Ipsum is not simply random text. It has roots in a piece of classical Latin literature from 45 BC, making it over 2000 years old. Richard McClintock, a Latin professor at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the more obscure Latin words, consectetur, from a Lorem Ipsum passage, and going through the cites of the word in classical literature, discovered the undoubtable source. Lorem Ipsum comes from sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 of “de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum” (The Extremes of Good and Evil) by Cicero, written in 45 BC. This book is a treatise on the theory of ethics, very popular during the Renaissance. The first line of Lorem Ipsum, “Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet..”, comes from a line in section 1.10.32.
