@ Sadia Haque Lucky

The Green Party of Canada extends its best wishes to Muslims in Canada and around the world who celebrate Eid al-Adha. Also known as the Festival of Sacrifice, Eid al-Adha honors completion and follows the annual pilgrimage to Mecca.

“Due to travel restrictions linked to the pandemic, many Muslims have not been able to make the spiritual pilgrimage to Mecca this year,” said Annamie Paul, leader of the Green Party. “We hope that the strong dissemination of the vaccine and the current lifting of restrictions across Canada will enable families and communities to observe the prayers and celebrations of Eid al-Adha together this year. ” 

“On behalf of all members of the Green Party, Eid Mubarak! ”
