John Horgan

PREMIER John Horgan on Tuesday issued the following statement in honour of Eid al-Adha, the Feast of the Sacrifice:

“Today marks the beginning of the celebration of Eid al-Adha, the Feast of the Sacrifice. Eid al-Adha is one of the holiest celebrations in Islam, marking the end of the Hajj, the pilgrimage to Mecca.

“On behalf of all British Columbians, I would like to extend best wishes to Muslims in B.C., Canada and around the world.

“Eid al-Adha is a time to think about others – to give to charity, do good deeds and help people who need it the most.

“On Eid al-Adha, and every day, British Columbians must continue to work together to lift people up and help people who are less fortunate.

“To all the people observing Eid al-Adha, I wish you a joyful celebration.

“Eid Mubarak!”
