Statement by the Official Opposition on Eid Milad-un-Nabi

The Official Opposition’s critic for Multiculturalism, Andrew Cash (Davenport), made the following statement on Eid Milad-un-Nabi:

“Today on behalf of all New Democrats, I would like to extend my best wishes to Muslim Canadians as they celebrate Eid Milad-un-Nabi – the birth of the prophet Muhammad.

One of the largest celebrations of the year, Eid Milad-un-Nabi marks the birth, life and teachings of the prophet Muhammad.

New Democrats are grateful to the Muslim community for its contribution and commitment to the social fabric of our country.

We will work with Canadians from every background and every religion to build a fairer, greener, more prosperous country.”
