Statement by the Hon. Jody Wilson-Raybould,
Member of Parliament for Vancouver Granville on Eid al-Adha
I am delighted to extend my warmest greetings to the Muslim community in Vancouver Granville and beyond who are observing Eid al-Adha.
Considered one of the most important festivals for those who practice the Islamic faith, Eid al-Adha is a time of prayer, gift giving, and exchanging greetings, while reflecting on the meaning of sacrifice and charity. Across our country and around the world, families will gather to observe this holiest of holidays in the Islamic calendar.
To the families and friends who are observing Eid al-Adha in Vancouver Granville, I offer my best wishes. Thank you for being a part of our community and contributing to the mosaic that is our Canada.
