Statement from Andrew Wilkinson on Holi

This week Canadians from the Indian subcontinent will join their families and communities around the world to celebrate the religious, cultural and spring festival of Holi, also known as the Festival of Colors.

This colorful festival signifies the arrival of spring over winter, and the victory of good over evil. Friends and families will come together to sing, dance, light bonfires, and paint each other with brightly colored powder.

This joyous holiday is an opportunity to renew friendship, celebrate peace and shared values.

On behalf of the BC Liberal Caucus, I would like to extend our best wishes to everyone celebrating Holi.
