OTTAWA, ON – The Leader of Canada’s Conservatives and the Official Opposition, the Hon. Andrew Scheer, issued the following statement to celebrate Christmas:

“Merry Christmas everyone! Another beautiful Canadian holiday season is upon us. Like so many parents, Jill and I will treasure these precious days of rest and joy with our children, watching them enjoy every minute.

“For many Canadians, the celebration of Christ’s birth is a light in the darkness of our cold winter, a source of warmth and hope in our lives.

“We are blessed to live in Canada, a country of peace, freedom and prosperity. As we spend time with our families, let us recall these blessings in gratitude. Let us also keep in mind those for whom the holidays may be difficult in some way, those who are persecuted for their faith, and all who are less fortunate.

“As we celebrate Christmas, we also keep in our thoughts and prayers the men and women of the Canadian armed forces and first responders. Every year, they stand on guard for us, far from home and family, allowing us to continue enjoying the blessings of this country throughout the Christmas season.

“From my family to yours, I would like to offer my best wishes for a very Merry Christmas!
