Bradford West Gwillimbury residents of the Sikh faith have made and continue to make tremendous contributions to the growth and development of the community and the country as a whole; and
A fundamental strength of our community lies in our unique racial and ethno-cultural diversity. The value that we place upon respecting all beliefs and religions is a source of strength in our Town, our Province and our Country; and
In celebrating this significant holiday, our Sikh community provides our residents with an opportunity to experience and share in the educational, cultural and religious significance of this very important day.
THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED:
That His Worship Mayor Rob Keffer and Members of Council proclaim April 14, 2019 as KHALSA DAY in the Town of Bradford West Gwillimbury.
