TORONTO, October 14, 2017 – A PERSONAL MESSAGE FROM THE PREMIER
On behalf of the Government of Ontario, I am delighted to extend warm greetings to everyone attending the second Annual Muslim Awards for Excellence (MAX) Gala.
Tonight, you gather to honour the educational, professional and philanthropic achievements of Canadian Muslims. Canadian Muslims have made their mark in business, in the arts, in professions, in public service and every sphere of provincial life. Your skills, talents and cultural strengths have helped us build a strong workforce, energize our economy, and expand our cultural horizons.
I want to extend my sincere congratulations to tonight’s honourees. Know that you are role models for young Canadian Muslims and Canadians of all cultural backgrounds.
I want to commend the organizers for giving us the opportunity to recognize and honour the achievements of these exemplary individuals. By showcasing these achievements, you are helping break down prejudice and promoting diversity and respect.
I offer my best wishes for an inspiring gala.
