A Personal Message From The Premier
On behalf of the Government of Ontario, I am delighted to extend warm greetings to Orthodox Christians and Catholics of the various Eastern rites celebrating Easter this week. On this joyous occasion, families across Ontario will gather to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ — and His gift of redemption. To those of Christian faith, the resurrection is fundamental to their Christianity — an affirmation of God’s power and boundless grace.
Easter is a day of great joy and hope, one on which spirits are lifted with the words «Christ is Risen!» It also provides a very special opportunity for Christians to pray for health, peace and prosperity for their friends, family and community.
May this day bring you, your family and community many blessings, and be filled with the strength that is found in faith. Please accept my best wishes for a blessed and happy Easter.
Dalton McGuinty, Premier of Ontario
