PRIME Minister Justin Trudeau on Monday issued the following statement on Eid al-Fitr:
“Tonight at sunset, Muslims in Canada and around the world will celebrate Eid al-Fitr.
“Eid al-Fitr marks the end of the holy month of Ramadan. After a month of fasting and spiritual reflection, Eid is a time for community and celebration.
“This festival is also a chance to honour the values at the heart of Islam – from service and generosity to peace and compassion. Whether it’s volunteering at a food bank or supporting local charities, Muslim Canadians show us the best of those values, all throughout the year.
