"Canada has become a second homeland for tens of thousands of Lithuanians who moved to the West during the period of Lithuania's Soviet occupation. Canada has never recognized Lithuania's incorporation into the Soviet Union. Now Canada is a loyal NATO partner of Lithuania. Deployed in Latvia, Canadian troops ensure Lithuania's security as well," the statement reads.

It also states that the Town Hall will be lit in the colors of the Canadian flag from the eve of Canada Day, from 10.30 p.m. on Sunday, until the morning of July 1.

Canada Day is marked on July 1. It marks the day of the establishment of a confederation in Canada. This year marks the 152nd anniversary of that date.

This year on February 16, when Lithuania marked the Day of Restoration of the State of Lithuania, the Niagara Falls in Canada was also lit in the colors of Lithuania's flag. And a year ago, when Lithuania's marked the 100th anniversary of its independence, the Toronto authorities lit the city's highest building, CN Tower, in the colors of Lithuania's flag.
