OFFICIAL Opposition Leader Andrew Wilkinson, BC Liberal Party Leader, said in his Vaisakhi greetings:
I would like to extend my warmest wishes to everyone in British Columbia and around the world celebrating Vaisakhi, the holiest day in the Sikh calendar.
BC is home of the largest Vaisakhi celebration in North America. This is a testament to a community that has played a pivotal role in shaping British Columbia into what it is today: a proud multicultural society that is prosperous, vibrant, and rich in various faiths and traditions.
This is a special time of year in British Columbia, where we come together with friends in the Indo-Canadian community to celebrate a new year and new beginnings, a time which represents the birth of the Khalsa and the unique identity of the Sikh community.
May the coming year bring health, happiness, and success.
On behalf of the entire BC Liberal Caucus, I wish all those celebrating Vaisakhi a joyous celebration.
Vaisakhi Diyan Lakh Lakh Vadaiyan!
