At the start of this holy month of Ramadan, I along with the men and women of the Toronto Police Service, wish your congregation and their families a very happy and spiritually enriching Ramadan.
Ramadan is a great time to remember the common values that binds us together. Ramadan is also an opportunity to gather with friends and family to show thanks for God's blessing through prayer, fasting and works of charity.
Our society is enriched by our Muslim communities whose commitment to faith reminds us of the gift of religious freedom in our country, Canada, which we all call home.
Congratulations for a safe and joyous celebration in our of this special occasion.
Best wishes for a blessed Ramadan!
