Statement by the Leader of the Official Opposition on Eid-al-Fitr

The Leader of the Official Opposition, Tom Mulcair, made the following statement on Eid-al-Fitr and the end of Ramadan:

“On behalf of all New Democrats, I would like to offer my best wishes to all Muslims in Canada celebrating Eid-al-Fitr that marks the end of the month of Ramadan.

Over the last month, Muslims around the world have honoured their faith and showed their generosity during Ramadan – a time of sharing and compassion.

On this occasion of Eid, New Democrats join Muslims in Canada as we renew our shared commitment to social justice, humanitarianism and peace, and celebrate cultural and religious diversity as fundamental Canadian values.

To everyone observing Eid al-Fitr, we wish you a wonderful celebration. Eid Mubarak.”
