Calgary, AB (December 24, 2016): Dr. David Swann issued the following statement in celebration of the beginning of Hanukkah:
“Tonight marks the beginning of Hanukkah, the Festival of Lights. As families across Alberta gather to light the first candle of the menorah, I want to extend them the warmest wishes of myself and the Alberta Liberals.
“As the commemoration of the rededication of the defiled Holy Temple, Hanukkah celebrates the miracle of light in dark places, and of hope in dark times. As you observe this holiday in the company of dear friends and loved ones, I hope your own home becomes a source of light and warmth in this cold Alberta winter.
“A blessed and happy Hanukkah to you all. Chag sameach!”
