United Conservatives celebrate birth of Guru Gobind Singh Ji

The Honourable Jason Kenney, Leader of the Opposition and the United Conservative Caucus issued the following statement to recognize Guru Gobind Singh Ji:


“Today, Sikhs in Alberta and around the world celebrate the birth of Guru Gobind Singh Ji.


“The Tenth Master taught how to build a morally strong society. He strove for a society where everyone was equal irrespective of caste, colour and creed. His message was to fight against injustice and help the needy even at the cost of your own life.


“Alberta has a thriving and growing Sikh community which has always exemplified the virtues of Guru Gobind Singh Ji with support of charities that benefit the poor, the vulnerable, the elderly and the ill. Today is an opportunity for all Albertans to reflect on the important contributions of our Sikh community to our history and achievements, particularly their contribution through their selfless generosity and commitment to a stronger Alberta.


“We offer our best wishes for a joyous celebration to all Sikhs celebrating today.”
