Mr. Speaker, this week is Holy Week for Canadians of Greek Orthodox faith. In fact, it is Holy Week for all Eastern Orthodox religions. Sunday is the day we celebrate our Easter.
All over my riding of Saint-Denis, Canadians of Greek origin will be partaking in orthodox Easter traditions such as lamb roasting and dancing, along with traditional foods which will no doubt be in abundance. Families will be united and friends and neighbours of other cultural backgrounds will also share in this special day.
Saint-Denis is a riding where our differences, cultural and religious, are celebrated and exchanged in an effort to better understand one another. I am proud to represent such a riding.
I would like to conclude by wishing a happy Easter Day to all my constituents in the riding of Saint-Denis, and to all Canadians of Greek origin.
