Statement by NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh, in celebration of Diwali, Deepavali and Bandi Chhor Divas

"Today people around the world celebrate Diwali, Deepavali and Bandi Chhor Divas.

Diwali and Deepavali are festivals of light which celebrate the victory of good over evil. May your inner light dispel any challenges you face.

Bandi Chhor Divas celebrates the fight against political injustice. May we commit to standing in solidarity with all communities who seek justice.

On behalf of all New Democrats across the country, I wish you a very Happy Diwali, Deepavali and Bandi Chhor Divas."
