VICTORIA (March 20, 2019) – Leader of the Official Opposition, Andrew Wilkinson, released the following statement today for Holi:
“Today, many British Columbians will join families and friends in communities across the province to celebrate the religious and cultural festival of Holi.
“Also known as the Festival of Colors, Holi marks the arrival of spring for Hindus around the world. It is a joyous occasion of singing, dancing, and vibrant colours; but also encourages personal reflection on right and wrong as well as the nature of good and evil.
“Holi is celebrated by Hindus and non-Hindus alike here in British Columbia. These celebrations remind us all that diversity is a core value and strength of our province. Holi is a chance to celebrate those values.
“On behalf of the entire BC Liberal Caucus, I would like to wish all those celebrating Holi a successful, happy, and colourful festival!
