V ICTORIA – On the holy oc­ca­sion of Eid al-Adha, B.C. Premier John Hor­gan made the fol­low­ing state­ment on be­half of the New Demo­crat Gov­ern­ment Cau­cus. “On be­half of the New Demo­crat cau­cus, we ex­tend our whole-hearted and warm­est greet­ings to the Mus­lim com­mu­nity as the an­nual cel­e­bra­tion of Eid al-Adha. All Bri­tish Columbians who prac­tice the Is­lamic faith look for­ward to this holy oc­ca­sion, and we wish all who cel­e­brate a joy­ous and re­flec­tive Eid Mubarak,” said Hor­gan. “The Mus­lim com­mu­nity works be­side oth­ers of­fer­ing as­sis­tance to peo­ple in need, now and through­out the year. That help is given to peo­ple of all com­mu­ni­ties and faiths and is deeply ap­pre­ci­ated. Your ser­vice helps build stronger, more com­pas­sion­ate com­mu­ni­ties. “The lessons of sac­ri­fice and gen­eros­ity Eid al-Adha em­body are re­flected in the many great con­tri­bu­tions made to our prov­ince by the Mus­lim com­mu­nity. This is a won­der­ful time to ac­knowl­edge Eid al-Adha and also to re­mem­ber the im­por­tant con­tri­bu­tions Cana­dian Mus­lims have made to so­ci­ety. “As Mus­lims cel­e­brate Eid al-Adha in a re­newal of faith, we join with you in wish­ing for a most won­der­ful and bright fu­ture.
