TORONTO– Liberal Leader Bob Rae made the following statement on Vaisakhi:
“Today we mark the celebration of the founding of the Khalsa for those of the Sikh faith. We also mark the beginning of New Year’s festivities for those of the Hindu faith around the world.
During this joyful time, as people pray and celebrate family and faith, let us give thanks for the harvest and our continued prosperity. This is a festival of great importance to Hindu and Sikh families. Let us take pride that these traditions are alive and well in Canada; they are a testament to the cultural vibrancy and diversity of our beautiful country.
On behalf of the Liberal Party of Canada and our Parliamentary Caucus, I would like to extend my very best wishes for good health and happiness on this Vaisakhi.”
