OTTAWA – The Leader of the Liberal Party of Canada, Justin Trudeau, today issued the following statement on the occasion of Thai Pongal:
“Today marks the beginning of Thai Pongal, a jubilant occasion for Tamils in Canada and around the world, as they observe the end of the harvest season.
“This festival allows friends and families to gather and rejoice in appreciation of a prosperous harvest and a season of good fortune. This is a time for joy, celebration, and community.
“We also take this time to acknowledge the many contributions of Tamil Canadians to our country’s economic, social, and cultural prosperity. Canada is a country with a rich history of multiculturalism, and we are reminded of this diversity with each passing day.
“On behalf of the Liberal Party of Canada and our entire Parliamentary Caucus, I extend my warmest wishes to all those celebrating Thai Pongal. Iniya Pongal Nalvazhthukkal!”
