Statement by Ontario NDP Leader Andrea Horwath in honour of Eid Al-Adha

QUEEN’S PARK — Official Opposition Ontario NDP Leader Andrea Horwath released the following statement in honour of Sunday’s celebration of Eid Al-Adha:

“As-salamu alaykum.

As Leader of the Official Opposition and the Ontario NDP Caucus, I want to wish you and your family on this Sunday’s happy occasion of Eid al-Adha a joyous and heartfelt Eid Mubarak.

Eid is a wonderful time to come together and to celebrate the values that are so important in all of our lives. The spirit of charitable giving, sacrifice and helping one another are central to Eid al-Adha, and they are vital qualities we can all reflect on and share to create a stronger and more prosperous Ontario for everyone.

Islam is a faith of grace, peace, kinship, and generosity. May we all take these universal values to heart during Eid, and always.

I and the entire Ontario NDP Caucus wish you a wonderful day filled with great food, fun time with family, friends and loved ones and lots of laughter.

Eid Mubarak!”
