Premier John Horgan has released the following statement in honour of Passover:
“Beginning at sunset on Friday, March 30, Jewish families throughout British Columbia will celebrate Passover.
“Friends and family will gather together on the first night of Passover for the seder, commemorating the exodus from slavery in ancient Egypt.
“It is an opportunity for reflection and renewal, reminding those of Jewish faith of their history and fight for freedom from oppression.
“We honour the many contributions of the Jewish community to our province, and I wish everyone a happy Passover, and Chag Sameach!”
