Statement by Green Party Leader Elizabeth May for Holy Week

OTTAWA – Elizabeth May, Leader of the Green Party of Canada and Member of Parliament for Saanich – Gulf Islands, extends her warmest wishes to those celebrating Easter.

“For practicing Christians, this week’s observances include Good Friday, the death and passion of Jesus Christ, Holy Saturday, the vigil over His tomb, and Easter Sunday, the day of His resurrection. It is a foundational event for Christians, and a source of deep faith.

“To all who observe Easter as the most sacred day in the Christian calendar, let us raise our voices in a shared ‘Hallelujah!’

“To Canadians for whom Easter is not a religious event, enjoy the long weekend! Spring is coming!”
