Andrew Weaver statement on Diwali

October 18, 2017

VICTORIA B.C. – Andrew Weaver, leader of the B.C. Green Party, sent his best wishes to those celebrating Diwali, the Festival of Lights.

β€œI wish all members of the Hindu, Jain, Sikh and Buddhist communities across B.C. and around the world a very happy Diwali and Bandi Chhor Divas,” said Weaver.

β€œThe Festival of Lights is a time to celebrate the triumph of the brightest parts of our society - knowledge over ignorance, hope over fear and light over darkness. It is also a time to contemplate the importance of service to others. In B.C., let it also be a time to celebrate the vibrant diversity of our province.”
