Diwali Greetings from the Premier of Ontario:
Premier of Ontario - Première ministre de l’Ontario
October 19, 2017
A PERSONAL MESSAGE FROM THE PREMIER
On behalf of the Government of Ontario, I want to wish our
Indo Canadian community a happy Diwali. As Premier, I am grateful
for the rich heritage and beautiful traditions that Indo Canadians bring
to our society.
On this joyful occasion, Hindus, Sikhs, Jains and Buddhists across
Ontario welcome Diwali by decorating shops and homes with lights
and rangoli, exchanging gifts, enjoying fireworks displays, and
gathering for festive meals with loved ones.
Diwali, also known as the Festival of Lights, signifies the triumph of
light over darkness, knowledge over ignorance and happiness over
despair. This festival is a reaffirmation of hope and a celebration of life
May the joyousness of Diwali strengthen your families, your friendships
and your community. I wish you all prosperity and good health. Have a
Kathleen Wynne Premier
