We honour Thai Pongal values to make Canada more inclusive place: Canadian PM

Justin-Trudeau-700-01

Canadian Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau has observed that they honour Thai Pongal values to make Canada an even better, more inclusive place to live.

His Thai Pongal festival message reads: "Today, Tamils in Canada and around the world mark Thai Pongal, the Tamil harvest festival.

Thai Pongal is a time to give thanks for the many gifts of the harvest. Families and friends will come together to celebrate peace, abundance, and happiness, and to share Pongal, a sweet dish of rice and milk traditionally served during the festival.

In January, we also mark Tamil Heritage Month, and reflect on the important contributions of Canada's Tamil community. Tamil Canadians help make Canada stronger, more open, and more inclusive. As we move forward together in 2018, let's continue to honour those values.

On behalf of the Government of Canada, Sophie and I wish everyone celebrating a very happy Thai Pongal."
