“Today, Muslims in Canada and around the world will gather with family and friends to celebrate Eid al-Fitr, marking the end of the holy month of Ramadan.

“After a month of fasting and reflection, Eid is a time for Muslims to come together to feast, celebrate, and share their good fortune with others.

“Muslim communities continue to make Canada stronger, more open, and more prosperous. Today, let’s celebrate their major contributions to our country.

“On behalf of our family, Sophie and I extend our warmest wishes to all those celebrating Eid al-Fitr.
