Statement from Elizabeth May on Easter weekend 2016

(OTTAWA) March 24, 2016 – Elizabeth May, Leader of the Green Party of Canada (MP, Saanich – Gulf Islands), extends her warmest wishes to Canadians on this Easter weekend:

“For practising Christians, Easter is the most sacred religious event and a source of deep faith. This week’s observances include Good Friday, to mark the death of Jesus Christ; Holy Saturday, the vigil over His tomb, and Easter Sunday, the celebratory day of His resurrection.

For many Canadians, Easter is an opportunity to connect once again with loved ones and share a meal together. To those for whom Easter is not a religious event, enjoy the long weekend and the invaluable time with your families. A joyful Easter to all!” Ms. May concluded.
