Statement by the Leader of the NDP on Jewish Heritage Month

The Leader of the NDP, Jagmeet Singh, issued the following statement recognizing Canadian Jewish Heritage Month:

“This year, the month of May marks the first official Canadian Jewish Heritage Month.

The Jewish community in Canada has played an integral role in strengthening the social and economic fabric of our country. The month of May has now officially become an opportunity to acknowledge these contributions, and reflect on the many benefits of living in an open, and inclusive country where diversity is not only a strength, but a pillar of our society.

On behalf of all New Democrats, I would like to extend my best wishes for an enjoyable Canadian Jewish Heritage Month, and encourage everyone to learn about the culture, history and achievements of the Canadian Jewish community.”
