“The Ontario PC Caucus is delighted to join the Jewish community in celebrating Purim. This celebration commemorates the Jewish people’s survival in the face of a plot to exterminate them in ancient Persia.
“Purim is a time of fun and lively spirits; it is customary to get together with friends, family, and the community to give gifts, eat traditional meals, and giving to the less fortunate.
“It is also a wonderful opportunity to come together and read the Megillah, which recounts the story of the Purim miracle.
“As Progressive Conservatives, we are proud to embrace victory over discrimination and oppression; and will continue to stand up against acts of anti-Semitism and intolerance.
“On behalf of the Ontario PC caucus, we send our best wishes to members of the Ontario Jewish community as they celebrate Purim.
“Chag Purim Sameach!”
