Statement from Liberal Leader Michael Ignatieff on Canada Day
“Today, Canadians across this great nation are proudly celebrating Canada’s 142nd birthday – and we have much to be proud of,” said Michael Ignatieff.
“After 142 years of accomplishment and leadership, Canada is a beacon of hope in a world of uncertainty and division. Since 1867, we have set an example for all others in our global community.
“We speak two official languages and countless others from every corner of the world. We are home to a wealth of diverse cultures and creeds and religious traditions. We look to different distant shores, or to different corners of our land, to find our families’ roots. And still we are one – one great people sharing one great country, strong and free from coast to coast to coast.
“As we gather with our neighbours today to mark our success as a nation, we also look to a future of greater unity, greater compassion, and greater prosperity for all.
“On behalf of the Liberal Party of Canada and our Parliamentary caucus, I wish everyone – young and young at heart – a very Happy Canada Day!”
