Mr. Speaker, as a non-Christian myself, I do not find this offensive at all.
Canada has a long tradition of pluralism and it is truly wonderful that people of all faiths are able to practice and celebrate their traditions openly in Canada.
During this season of Hanukkah, we wish our Jewish friends, Chag Hanukkah Sameach.
During Vaisakhi, we wish Sikhs, Vaisakhi diyan lakh lakh Vadhaiyan.
True diversity means respecting the traditions of all Canadians, including those of Christian Canadians. I ask all members during this Christmas season to wish our Christian friends a very merry Christmas.
