This comes via Listen Up TV who again this year had the privilege of airing this official greeting.
Here’s the text below…
Prime Minister Stephen Harper issued the following greeting ahead of Easter weekend:
“Easter is a season of tremendous hope for Christians around the world. For them, it is a triumph of life over death, and the redeeming power of love over evil.
“It is fitting that Easter is in the spring, a season of rebirth that brings optimism to our great land. Just as seeds that lie dormant all winter come to life for the benefit of all, so Christians believe Christ rose from the dead, to the benefit of all who wish to embrace Him.
“Laureen and I join in wishing Canadians a Happy Easter. This weekend, may we all, whatever faith we follow, experience the spirit of peace and love that Easter stands for.”
