Mike Schreiner issued the following statement on Eid al-Fitr:
Over the past month during Ramadan, Muslims across Ontario and around the world have honoured their faith’s principles of charity and compassion through fasting and prayer. Eid al-Fitr marks the end of the holy month where friends and family members come together to feast, celebrate and give thanks.
Eid al-Fitr offers an opportunity for new beginnings. It is a time to move forward and commit to upholding the faith’s key tenets of generosity, forgiveness, and gratitude in the year ahead.
On behalf of the Green Party of Ontario, I want to give thanks to all Muslims in Ontario for your many contributions to our province and our communities. We stand with you in celebrating Ontario’s diversity and in promoting generosity, forgiveness, and gratitude.
To all those celebrating the end of this holy month of spiritual renewal, the GPO would like to send our best wishes. Eid Mubarak!
