Statement by Liberal Party of Canada Leader Justin Trudeau on Canadian Multiculturalism Day

OTTAWA – The Leader of the Liberal Party of Canada, Justin Trudeau, today issued the following statement on Canadian Multiculturalism Day:

“On Multiculturalism Day, Canadians from all corners of the country come together to celebrate the cultural diversity that has become so deeply characteristic of – and essential to – our national fabric and Canadian identity.

“Canada has long been a beacon of hope to the rest of the world – a model nation founded on the principles of acceptance, fundamental freedoms, and mutual respect. Together, we have proven that a country can be stronger not in spite of its differences, but precisely because of them.

“On behalf of the Liberal Party of Canada and our entire Parliamentary Caucus, I would like to extend my very best wishes to all Canadians on Multiculturalism Day.”
