Statement by Official Opposition leader Tom Mulcair on Canada Day

This weekend, New Democrats join Canadians from coast-to-coast-to-coast to honour this great country on its 146th birthday.

July 1st is an opportunity to celebrate the shared values that make Canada one of the best places on earth to live. We are a diverse, welcoming and progressive country—where striving to be our best and looking after each other go hand-in-hand.

Whether this is your first Canada Day or you’ve been here all your life, let’s reflect on our accomplishments and work together to build a greener, fairer, more prosperous Canada for future generations.

On behalf of the whole NDP team, I wish you and your family a safe and happy Canada Day.
