Canada: Official Opposition leader Tom Mulcair (Outremont) made the following statement on Vaisakhi:
On behalf of the New Democratic Party of Canada, I would like to wish all those celebrating across the nation a very happy Vaisakhi.
This year marks the 315th anniversary of the creation of the Khalsa Panth by Guru Gobind Singh Ji and the mother of the Khalsa Mata Sahib Kaur Ji.
The Khalsa’s commitment to justice and equality are values cherished by the NDP.
As many Canadians gather to celebrate throughout this month, New Democrats join you in renewing our commitments to the principles Kirt Karna, Vand Shukna and Seva.
Once again, from our NDP family to yours, have a wonderful Vaisakhi!
Subh Noo Vaisakhi Dee Lakh Lakh Vadhaiyee Hove Ji.
