VICTORIA (July 30, 2020) – Leader of the Official Opposition, Andrew Wilkinson, released the following statement today for Eid al-Adha:
“Tonight we celebrate the start of the Islamic Feast of Sacrifice, or Eid al-Adha, one of the most important and holy holidays in the Muslim communities here in British Columbia and all around the globe.
“It is an occasion where family is celebrated, and good food is shared with loved ones as well as those in need.
“This year, COVID-19 public health restrictions will mean some people will be unable to mark this holy day in the company of family and friends. I hope everyone celebrating today is able to find a safe and meaningful way to mark this occasion with their loved ones.
“On behalf of the entire BC Liberal Caucus, I want to extend our warmest wishes to all those celebrating Eid al-Adha here in British Columbia and throughout the world,”
