Premier John Horgan has issued the following statement in honour of Eid al-Adha, the Feast of the Sacrifice:
“Today we join Muslim communities in British Columbia and around the world to mark the beginning of Eid al-Adha, the Feast of the Sacrifice.
“Eid al-Adha is one of the holiest celebrations in Islam and is a time to reflect on helping others and making the world a better place. Families and friends will gather to feast, exchange gifts and well wishes and provide food to less fortunate people.
“On Eid al-Adha, and every day, we must come together in unity to lift up those who need it most.
“To everyone observing Eid al-Adha, I wish you a wonderful celebration.
