Mr. Speaker, I rise today to wish all Canadians who are celebrating Nowruz all the best in the year ahead.
The passing of the vernal equinox is a sign of rebirth and awakening of nature, a moment of renewal that celebrates life. As we celebrate this time, we are given the opportunity to reflect and give thanks for past blessings and look forward to the hard work that we as members of Parliament will continue to do to help build a society that is inclusive of all its members.
At this time of renewal, I wish everyone a year filled with happiness and success. As members of Parliament, we should do everything we can to ensure that this new year provides opportunities for everyone.
I ask my colleagues in the House to join me in wishing everyone health, happiness and success for the new year.
