Smith issues statement marking Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji's birthday

EDMONTON, AB (November 28, 2012): Wildrose Official Opposition Leader Danielle Smith released the following statement today marking Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji’s birthday:

“Today is a joyous occasion for members of the Sikh community across Alberta in celebrating the 544th anniversary of Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji, the first Sikh guru, and the founder of the Sikh faith.  “This occasion gives all Albertans an opportunity to celebrate the great contributions our Sikh community has made to our province.  Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji’s teachings helped lay the spiritual pillars and fundamental principles of Sikhism including universal peace, compassion and service to our neighbours that transcends all cultures and backgrounds in our society.  “As Sikh families gather together today around the world, I encourage all Albertans to join with our Sikh community here in Alberta and to take time to learn more about the Sikh faith and their contributions in helping make our province the great place it is today.  “On behalf of my colleagues with the Wildrose Official Opposition I wish all Albertans and members of our Sikh community a joyful celebration of Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji’s birthday.”
