Officers joined the Sikh community in celebrating Khalsa Day with food, dance, music and a colourful parade to celebrate the birth of their faith. The Khalsa Day parade is held in celebration of the Sikh New Year and to mark the end of Sikh Heritage Month. The parade, which drew 40,000 Torontonians, began at Exhibition Place, with many colorful floats and five ‘beloved ones’ holding the Sikh and Canadian flags.
