The Leader of the Liberal Party of Canada, Justin Trudeau, today issued the following statement on Navratri:
“Today, Hindu communities in Canada and around the world will celebrate the beginning of Navratri.
One of the most important festivals of the year, Navratri symbolizes the triumph of good over evil. Over the next nine nights, families and friends will come together to pray, share meals, dance, and celebrate.
Around the world, Hindus and non-Hindus alike celebrate this festival. Canada is, and always will be, stronger because of our diversity. Today, let’s appreciate everything that brings us together, and celebrate the many contributions that Hindu Canadians make to our communities and our country.
On behalf of our family, Sophie and I wish a happy Navratri to everyone celebrating.”
