Statement by Liberal Leader Bob Rae on the Beginning of Ramadan

Posted on July 19, 2012

SYDNEY, NS— Liberal Leader Bob Rae made the following statement today on the beginning of Ramadan:

“For Muslims across Canada and around the world, the holy month of Ramadan is a time for fasting and spiritual reflection, to commit and recommit to charity, devotion and discipline.

It is a time for all Canadians to appreciate the values that allow us all to celebrate our faith freely and openly in a country of such rich diversity.

On behalf of the Liberal Party of Canada and our Parliamentary caucus, I wish all Canadian Muslims and Muslims around the world a month of peaceful worship.”
