Message from Michael Ignatieff, Leader of the Official Opposition, on Passover

On behalf of the Liberal Party of Canada and our parliamentary caucus, I would like to extend my warmest wishes to all Canadians celebrating Passover, one of the most important Jewish festivals of the year.

Passover commemorates the exodus of the Israelites from Egypt and their freedom from the reign of the Egyptian Pharaoh. It is a time where families come together at the Seder table to re-tell the story of Passover and renew its message of hope, faith and liberation.

Let the message of Passover inspire all Canadians regardless of faith to cherish the principles of tolerance and goodwill.

From my family to yours, chag sameach.
