David Swann issued the following statement to mark the beginning of Ramadan:
“On behalf of myself and the Alberta Liberals, I would like to extend my best wishes to all of my fellow Albertans that have begun celebrating the holy month of Ramadan.
“This month is for reflection and introspection, and so I hope that you reconnect with what is important to you in these times. It is also a time for community, and I wish you warm, pleasant, and cheerful times with friends and loved ones as you gather for the nightly iftar meal.
“Ramadan is one of many opportunities for members of the Muslim faith to come together and strengthen their bonds of friendship and family. I encourage all Albertans to learn more from their Muslim neighbours and help them build stronger, safer communities for us all.
