"On behalf of the Official Opposition and the Conservative Party of Canada, I am delighted to extend my warmest greetings to everyone celebrating Lunar New Year.
"The start of the Year of the Monkey is a time of both reflection and anticipation. Lunar New Year is a wonderful opportunity to highlight the valuable contributions of Canadians of Chinese, Vietnamese, and Korean descent to our country’s social, economic and cultural vitality.
"I am honoured to offer you my best wishes for abundant happiness, health and prosperity in the coming year.
"Happy Lunar New Year!"
