FRIDAY, JULY 1, was an important day for Canadians worldwide, who celebrated Canada Day. In Lisbon, diplomats and dignitaries from the international community were invited to the residence of the Canadian Ambassador, Patrick Parisot, and his wife D. Carmen Altamirano. The lunchtime invitation gave members of the community the chance to renew ties with the Canadian Embassy’s staff. Pictured are, from left, Louise Levasseur, Conrad Sheck, D.
