NEW Democrat leader John Horgan and Deputy Multiculturalism Spokesperson Jane Shin issued the following statement on the annual occasion of India’s Republic Day on behalf of the B.C. New Democrats:

“On behalf of the B.C. New Democrat Caucus, we send best wishes to the people of India as they celebrate Republic Day on January 26 and India’s continuing legacy as the world’s largest democracy.

“India’s progress after independence is an inspiration and a triumph to be proud of by all Indians wherever they reside.  This is a day to truly celebrate a nation that has endured and found a common identity for all its citizens.

“The New Democrat Caucus also sends greetings to all who are celebrating Republic Day in Canada, and those Canadians, of Indian decent in British Columbia, who have played an important role in building our great province.”
