“I am delighted to join our Sikh friends and neighbours in Ontario, Canada, and throughout the world in celebrating the birth of the founder of Sikhism, Guru Nanak Dev Ji.
“Guru Nanank Dev Ji founded Sikhism on the principles of the equality of all humans, service to community and those in need, and living an honest life.
“Our Sikh friends and neighbours are a vital part of Ontario’s multicultural fabric. For over 100 years, Ontario’s Sikh community—which values family, faith and service to others—has had a remarkable impact on the building of our great province. We take pride in the vibrant, hardworking, and 200,000-strong Sikh community in Ontario as you continue to make a positive mark in every sector, field, and endeavor.
“Please accept my best wishes for a meaningful and enriching celebration of the life and legacy of Guru Nanak Dev Ji.”
