Statement from Conservative Leader Pierre Poilievre on Pakistan’s Independence Day

Ottawa, ON — The Hon. Pierre Poilievre, Leader of the Conservative Party of Canada and the Official Opposition, released the following statement on Pakistan’s Independence Day: 

“Today, on the anniversary of their independence, people in Pakistan will come together for flag-raising ceremonies, parades and celebrations, affirming their fierce pride in their history and their commitment to their democracy. 

“Here in Canada, Pakistani communities from coast to coast to coast will be holding festivities of their own, honouring the deep bonds of heritage and culture that unite them with their homeland and with the Pakistani diaspora around the world.  

“For over 75 years, Canada has been incredibly blessed to welcome thousands of Pakistanis who have brought the richness of their culture to our shores. Over generations, they have claimed their place in our Canadian family, helping build strong and thriving communities in every corner of our country.  

“Today, Pakistani Canadians continue to enrich our neighbourhoods as business owners, professionals, faith leaders, and volunteers committed to making Canada a freer and more welcoming place for everyone. As Canadians continue to face the affordability challenges of our time, and Pakistanis yearn for democracy and stability in Pakistan, these Canadians have drawn on the strength of their community and helped spread hope by generously sharing the beauty of their heritage with their neighbours. 

“To those celebrating here in Canada, in Pakistan and around the world, Happy Pakistan Independence Day!”
