NDP Leader Tom Mulcair issued the following statement marking Yom Kippur:
“As members of the Jewish faith across Canada and around the world gather to observe Yom Kippur, Catherine and I, along with the entire NDP team, extend our best wishes for an easy fast.
The Day of Atonement is the holiest day in the Jewish calendar, and a solemn time for reflection, repentance and humility.
Yom Kippur is also a day of hope, and reminds us all of the shared Canadian values of kindness, humility and generosity.
On this special day, let us unite in hope for a better future for all.
G’mar Chatima Tovah.”
