Bonne Année 1433 Happy New Year

November 29, 2011
Assalamou alaikoum,

The following message from Mayor Tremblay to Montreal Muslims extending his best wishes for the new Islamic year:

I am pleased to extend my best wishes for the New Islamic Year 1433 Hijri to my fellow Montrealers from the Muslim community. This is a wonderful opportunity to celebrate and to rejoice that we live in a community committed to peace and harmony here and throughout the world. The Council of Europe and the European Commission have just recognized Montréal as an “Intercultural City” for its many intercultural activities. I am pleased to share this honour with you and I can promise that we will do everything in our power to build on Montréal’s reputation as an inclusive metropolis.

I wish you a wonderful New Year!
