Brampton, Apr 15 (IBNS) – Ruby Sahota, Member of Parliament for Brampton North, wished all Bramptonians and Canadians from coast to coast a joyous Vaisakhi yesterday.

A press release issued by the MP’s office stated: “Vaisakhi celebrates the founding in 1699 of the Khalsa – the community of baptized Sikhs – by Guru Gobind Singh Ji. Today, family and friends will gather to pray in gurdwaras and in the coming weeks participate in nagar kirtans.”

“We are fortunate to live in a country like Canada where we can celebrate our festivals and share our culture, traditions and language with all Canadians, while upholding and exemplifying the tenets of Sikhism – Naam Japo, Kirat Karo and Vand Chakko,” the release said.

Sikhism is rooted in equality, unity, selfless service and social justice – values that all Canadians hold dearly and strive to incorporate into daily life.
Canada is home to one of the largest Sikh populations in the world and today marks a day to celebrate their immense contribution to the history of the country.
