Statement on Hanukkah

The Green Party of Ontario would like to extend our best wishes to all Canadians celebrating the beginning of Hanukkah, the festival of lights today. 

 
For the Jewish community, Hanukkah is a time for the celebration of triumph over adversity. 
 
Hanukkah is also a time for all of us to reflect on the fact that too many people of all faiths and backgrounds, still live in fear because of who they are and what they believe. 
 
This holiday should serve as a reminder to us all that Ontario has been made strong not in spite of our differences, but because of them. 
 
Let us take this take to renew our commitment to building a better, more inclusive Ontario, and a better world.
