Statement for Easter 2017

(OTTAWA) – As many Canadians gather this weekend for invaluable time with family and friends, the Green Party of Canada extends best wishes to everyone celebrating Easter.

For Christians, Good Friday marks the death of Jesus Christ; Holy Saturday is the vigil over His tomb, and Easter Sunday is the celebratory day of His resurrection. This is a joyful day and the foundation upon which Christians build their faith.

On behalf of Elizabeth May, Leader of the Green Party of Canada (MP, Saanich-Gulf Islands), and all Greens, a joyful Easter to all!
