VICTORIA (August 12, 2019) – Leader of the Official Opposition, Andrew Wilkinson, released the following statement today in honour of Eid al-Adha:
“Last night we marked the start of the Islamic Feast of Sacrifice, or Eid al-Adha. This religious holiday is one of the most important and holy holidays in Muslim communities around the globe.
“It is a time of togetherness where family is celebrated, and good food is both enjoyed at home and shared with those in need.
“The contributions made by British Columbia’s Muslim community are an integral part of local economies and community character across this province.
“On behalf of the entire BC Liberal Caucus, I want to extend my warmest wishes to all those celebrating Eid al-Adha and to those who completed the holy pilgrimage of Hajj in Mecca, please accept my most sincere congratulations.
