EDMONTON, AB (April 14, 2015): Today, Wildrose Leader Brian Jean released the following statement marking the celebration of Vaisakhi:
“Here in Alberta, Sikhs are gathering together to celebrate one of the most important days in the Sikh calendar.
“This day marks the blessed beginning of the Sikh faith when in 1699 Guru Gobing Singh Ji founded what is today’s global Sikh community.
“Since that day, Alberta has become home to a proud and vibrant Sikh community that has made the fabric and diversity of our province stronger. I encourage all Albertans to reflect on the wonderful contributions of our Sikh community to our heritage.
“On behalf of the Wildrose, I extend my very best wishes to all Albertans celebrating today.”
