United Conservatives observe Losar
The Hon. Jason Kenney, Leader of the United Conservatives, issued the following statement in celebration of Losar:
“Today, marks the most important day of the lunar Tibetan, Nepalese and Bhutanese calendar. Losar is a time of renewal, celebration and joyful gatherings with family and community.
“For Albertans, Losar provides an opportunity to reflect on the tremendous contributions that members of the Tibetan community have made to this province’s rich and diverse heritage.
“During my time as federal minister I was honoured to meet His Holiness the Dali Lama more than once, one of the world’s great champions of peace and pluralism and an honorary Canadian citizen.
“As Leader of the United Conservative Party of Alberta, I extend my best wishes to those celebrating Lunar New Year. May the Year of the Boar bring you happiness, health and prosperity!
“Losar Tashi delek!”
