KLEES: Easter Celebrated on Same Date
By All Churches This Year

(QUEEN'S PARK) Oak Ridges MPP Frank Klees, the PC Education and Citizenship & Immigration Critic, today made the following statement: "Easter is usually observed on different dates by the Churches of both East and West. Happily, this year Easter is celebrated at the same time by all.

"The hope of renewal and resurrection that is the message of Easter is visibly reflected in the reawakening of nature at spring-time and is symbolized by the Easter egg.

"Canada's multicultural diversity is likewise reflected in the many varying Easter traditions, especially the traditional observances and foods.

"I would like to take this opportunity to wish my constituents and all York Region residents a joyous Easter:

Chinese (Mandarin) – Fu huo jie kuai le

Chinese (Cantonese) – Fuhkwuhtjit faailohk Dutch – Zalig Paasdagen

French – Joyeuses Paques
