Smith issues statement marking end of Ramadan

EDMONTON, AB (August 8, 2013): Today, Wildrose Official Opposition Leader Danielle Smith issued the following statement to mark Eid al-Fitr, the end of the fasting month of Ramadan:

 "Today is a significant day for Muslims here in Alberta and around the world as they mark the end of a month of fasting during Ramadan. "Eid al-Fitr, also known as the Festival of the Break of the Fast, is a time of celebration marked by prayers, charity and the gathering of friends and family for festive meals. "We know here in Alberta, the act of fasting by our Muslim community during the extended days of summer, is truly the sign of strong faith and sacrifice. "As Muslims in our province mark this occasion with generosity and gratitude, I encourage all Albertans to reflect on the contributions our Muslim community has made in building our province for the future. "On behalf of my colleagues in the Wildrose Official Opposition, I'd like to extend best wishes to Muslims here in Alberta and across the globe as they celebrate Eid al-Fitr."
