Premier Christy Clark issued the following statement marking Eid ul-Fitr:
“Today, British Columbians of the Muslim faith will celebrate Eid ul-Fitr, the last day of Ramadan. After a month of fasting from dawn to sunset, Muslims in B.C. and around the globe will break their fast with family and friends.”
“Eid ul-Fitr celebrates not only the end of fasting, but also the many blessings in each of our lives. It’s a time to reflect on the shared values of compassion, charity, and community that both Muslims and all British Columbians practise every day.
“One of our greatest strengths as a country, and as a province, is bringing together people of all faiths. I hope British Columbians will join their Muslim friends and neighbours in celebrating Eid.”
