Statement by Liberal Leader Bob Rae on Passover

BOUCTOUCHE, NB– Liberal Leader Bob Rae made the following statement today on Passover:

“On Passover, we mark the beginning of a festival of great importance to Jewish families in Canada and around the world.

Passover is a time to commemorate and celebrate an historic journey from bondage and oppression to peace and freedom. These are values that can be understood and appreciated by Canadians of all backgrounds and beliefs. Over the next several days, let us come together at Seder tables across Canada to share – from one generation to the next – the cherished and remarkable story of Passover.

On behalf of the Liberal Party of Canada and our Parliamentary caucus, Arlene and I extend our very best wishes to all those in the Jewish community on this Passover. Chag Sameach!”
