Statement recognising the start of Hanukkah

Please read the following statement from Elizabeth May, Member of Parliament for Saanich–Gulf Islands and Leader of the Green Party of Canada recognising the start of Hanukkah:

“As you light the first candle in the menorah tonight, please know that your non-Jewish Canadian family sends love and sympathy for the last dreadful month of pain and grief. 

We pray for peace for the holidays – Jewish and Christian – over the next few weeks and that they bring a shared longing for peace and justice. 

Happy Hanukkah!”
