Madam Speaker, I rise today to invite you and all hon. colleagues to Vesak Day on Parliament Hill. This is an event being held on May 10 from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. in the Sir John A. Macdonald Building. Vesak Day is the day Buddhists remember the birth, the enlightenment, and the passing away of the Buddha. I look forward to meeting with the Ambassadors of Thailand, Nepal, Myanmar, and others in this year’s wonderful celebration. We will have occasion not only to learn more about Buddhism but to celebrate the enormous contribution that so many Buddhist Canadians have made to our country. I would like to thank Vesak in Ottawa, an organization that is co-hosting this event, and invite all members to come to join them in celebrating this wonderful occasion.
