Dion Wishes Muslims On Eid

Statement by the Honourable Stéphane Dion, Leader of the Official Opposition, on the Celebration of Eid al-Fitr

October 12, 2007
On behalf of the Liberal Party of Canada and our Parliamentary caucus, I would like to extend my best wishes to all Muslim Canadians celebrating the end of Ramadan with Eid al-Fitr.

Eid al-Fitr is a joyous occasion for Muslims around the world. It not only marks the end of fasting, but it is a time to express appreciation to Allah for the strength and perseverance he has given to help practice self-control during the previous month. It is a spiritual time that brings rejoicing and happiness.

As you gather with relatives and friends to partake in special prayers and festivities marking the end of Ramadan, please accept my warmest regards for a most memorable celebration.
