Passover Greetings from the Prime Minister
It is with great pleasure that I extend my warmest greetings to the Jewish community in Canada as you observe Pesach.
A celebration of freedom and renewal, commemorating the Exodus from Egypt and liberation of the Children of Israel, Pesach stands as a testament to the determination and unwavering faith of the Jewish people. As you come together to mark this historic event, read the Haggadah and partake in the Seder, you may reflect on the rich heritage of the Jewish people and look forward with hope to the future.
In every field of endeavour, our country has been immeasurably enriched by the contributions of Jewish Canadians. Together, we are building a stronger and more prosperous country and charting a path for greater tolerance and understanding between people of all faiths and cultural backgrounds.
On behalf of the Government of Canada and my wife Laureen, please accept my heartfelt wishes for a happy and peaceful Pesach.
The Rt. Hon. Stephen Harper, P.C., M.P.
Prime Minister of Canada
