Statement on Ramadan
20 July 2012
The following is a statement by Ontario PC Leader Tim Hudak on the start of Ramadan:
“Today marks the beginning of the holy month of Ramadan, a time of prayer, fasting and self-sacrifice for Muslims living in Ontario and around the world.
“During this sacred month, the Islamic faith champions self-accountability, discipline and charitable deeds in support of those who are less fortunate – values that all Ontarians share and practice in our daily lives. In addition, Ramadan provides the opportunity for people to strengthen their ties with family members and loved ones.
“On behalf of the Ontario PC Caucus, I would like to thank our province’s Muslim community for all your many contributions, and wish you a blessed Ramadan.
