June 6, 2016 – Ramadan

As Ramadan begins, I would like to offer warm regards to all Canadians who are observing this holy month.

One of the most important rights protected by the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms is the right to worship.  The observance of Ramadan, one of the holiest times in the Muslim religious calendar, offers a time to reflect on one’s good fortune, the plight of those less fortunate and the importance of religion in one’s life.

May 26, 2016 – Guyanese Independence Day

I would like to take this opportunity to extend my best wishes to members of the Canadian Guyanese community on the occasion of Guyanese Independence Day.

Independence Day is celebrated on May 26th marking the day, in 1966, when British Guyana gained full independence from the United Kingdom.  On that day, the name of the country was changed to Guyana, meaning ‘land of waters’. It is a time to reflect on the past and look towards the future with a renewed sense of purpose.
