(September 21, 2009) – The Leader of the Liberal Party of Canada, Michael Ignatieff, spoke to the large gathering of Muslims on Sunday, September 20, 2009, at the CNE Direct Energy Centre in Toronto and extended Eid greetings on behalf of his party:
“As you gather with your family and friends to mark the end of Ramadan, please accept my warmest wishes for a joyful holiday.
Eid al-Fitr marks the end of a month of prayer and reflection for Muslims. It’s a time to help those in need and to give thanks for the strength and perseverance that define the month of Ramadan.
On behalf of the Liberal Party of Canada, I want to extend my best wishes to all Muslims, in Canada and around the world, as you celebrate Eid al-Fitr.”
