Eid Mubarak, everyone!! This video message by Justin Trudeau will make your day.
Happy Eid al-Fitr! The community spirit I felt at Ramadan food banks in Montreal and Toronto reminds us all – no matter our backgrounds, we're in this together.

This is the official statement which was released by the Canadian Prime Minister on the occasion of Eid:
“On this occasion, family and friends gather to attend special morning prayers, exchange greetings and gifts, share a celebratory meal, and give generously to others, especially those less fortunate.
“Canada’s cultural diversity is one of our greatest strengths and sources of pride. This year, as we mark the 150th anniversary of Confederation, we recognize the invaluable contributions the Muslim community makes to our national fabric.
“On behalf of our family, Sophie and I extend our best wishes to all those celebrating Eid al-Fitr.
Here’s how people appreciated his kind gesture:
In the name of 1,700.000.000 muslims
Thank you Mr Prime Minister
we all love you
