Statement by the Prime Minister of Canada on Easter
Ottawa, Ontario/5 April 2015
Prime Minister Stephen Harper today issued the following statement marking Easter:
“Today, I would like to extend my warmest wishes to all Christians in Canada and those around the world who are celebrating Easter.
“The most important feast of the Christian year, Easter, also known as Pascha, is the culmination of Holy Week, when Christians mark Jesus Christ’s sacrificial death on the Cross and celebrate his resurrection on the third day.
“For Christians, the celebration of Easter represents God’s redemption of humanity and the triumph of life over death.
“On behalf of our entire family, Laureen and I wish all those celebrating a very happy and joyful Easter.”
