Mr. Speaker, only a Liberal could think it is unethical to wish somebody a happy New Year.
Here I have a letter from the co-presidents of the Canadian Jewish Congress, who say:
We commend the Prime Minister for this thoughtful gesture. We are heartened that our elected officials make the effort to extend good wishes to members of other faith communities, communities that make a vibrant contribution to the diverse multicultural fabric of Canada.
That is what the communities are saying, but perhaps that member would like to ask his colleague from Thornhill why she was sending Chinese New Year's greetings to members of the Chinese community in her riding and where she came up with those lists. Probably from the same place we did.
