Speech in Debate on Canadian Jewish Heritage Month

I had the privilege of rising in the House to speak to Bill S-232, An Act respecting Canadian Jewish Heritage Month, which I am sponsoring in the House of Commons.

If passed, this bill will proclaim the month of May as Canadian Jewish Heritage Month throughout Canada.

The enactment of Canadian Jewish Heritage Month will ensure that the historic and ongoing contributions of Jewish Canadians are recognised, shared and celebrated across this great country, cementing their legacy and inspiring future generations to build a better Canada.

The full text of my speech can be found on the House of Commons website.
