Jagmeet Singh, Leader of Canada’s NDP, issued the following statement:

“Today marks the 549th anniversary of the birth of Guru Nanak Dev Ji and on behalf of New Democrats, I wish everyone a joyous and prosperous Gurpurab.

Guru Nanak Dev Ji dedicated his life to the values of the Sikh faith. He spread a message of love, equality, social justice, community service, and unity.

As Sikhs across the world celebrate Gurpurab, let’s take this opportunity to recognize the universality of Guru Nanak Dev Ji’s values and how they reflect the values of Canadians. Together, let’s recommit to building a more just and inclusive Canada.

I wish everyone observing a happy Guru Nanak Dev Ji Gurpurab.”
