Statement on Eid al-Fitr
18 August 2012
The following is a statement by Ontario PC Deputy Leader Christine Elliott on Eid al-Fitr – the Festival of the Breaking of the Fast:
“Today marks the end of the holy month of Ramadan and the beginning of Eid al-Fitr, a joyous occasion when Muslim families across the world celebrate the breaking of the fast.
“Eid al-Fitr provides the opportunity to gather in prayer with family and friends, share your blessings with those who are in need, and exchange gifts.
“The values espoused by this occasion speak to the valuable contribution of Muslim-Canadians to Ontario, and our province’s rich heritage of multiculturalism.
“On behalf of the Ontario PC Caucus, and our leader, Tim Hudak, I offer my most heartfelt wishes for health and happiness to all those celebrating Eid al-Fitr.
With warmest wishes,
Ontario PC Deputy Leader
