Premier Doug Ford — Today, Premier Doug Ford issued the following statement marking the Lunar New Year:
“The Lunar New Year is an exciting and special time for Chinese, Korean, Vietnamese, and many other communities across the province. It’s a time to celebrate with family and friends, exchange gifts, and welcome good fortune and success in the year ahead.
Ontario’s strength comes from its tremendous diversity. These communities contribute to our success through their involvement in the business community, a shared appreciation for hard work and traditions, and a wide variety of arts and cultural events that enrich communities across the province throughout the year.
This year, our government will continue to put money back in people’s pockets and make Ontario the best place in the world to find a job, grow a business, start a family, and build a better life. Together, we are building a stronger, more prosperous Ontario.
On behalf of the Government of Ontario, wishing everyone a happy, healthy and prosperous Year of the Rat!”
