Statement by Interim Leader Adam Olsen to mark Chinese New Year

Adam Olsen
Interim Leader, BC Green Party

On behalf of the BC Green Party, I would like to extend our warmest wishes to those celebrating Chinese New Year here in British Columbia and around the world.

Chinese New Year marks the most important Chinese Holiday. On this holiday, families and communities come together celebrate the Year of the Horse. The 15 day celebration is also an opportunity to reflect on the past and look forward with hope. In British Columbia and around the world we are facing climate and economic challenges that affect everyone, but these challenges can unite us all, as we work towards solutions together.

We must recognize and acknowledge the tremendous contributions by members of the Chinese community to British Columbia. The Chinese-Canadian community is strongest here in British Columbia largely as a result of the tremendous efforts of organizations within the Chinese community to promote community participation, cultural awareness and the strength of diversity. These values can be shared by all British Columbians and are essential to building a sustainable and prosperous British Columbia.

May the Year of the Horse bring you good fortune and prosperity!

農曆新年是中華文化最重要的節日。此節日將匯聚家庭與社區,慶祝馬年的到來。我們代表卑詩綠黨衷心地祝福卑詩以及全球華人新春快樂、恭喜發財。

新年是一個回顧過去與展望未來的好時機。雖然卑詩與全球都在面臨多種挑戰,如氣候變化,影響著每個人,但挑戰也使我們聯合在一起,凝聚力量,改善現狀,克服困難。

卑詩的華裔是加拿大最重要的華僑社區。我們必須正視並賞識卑詩省華裔對社會巨大的貢獻。各大華裔社區機構不斷地促進社區參與,文化交流,增強多元文化的力量。這些是卑詩省共通的價值,也是令本省走向永續繁榮的條件。

祝您新年愉快,馬年奔騰!
