Mr. Peter Julian (New Westminsterâ€”Burnaby, NDP): Mr. Speaker, I rise today to wish all Chinese Canadians and all those who celebrate the Lunar New Year, a Happy New Year of the Monkey.
In Chinese tradition, the monkey represents good humour, resourcefulness, and wit. These are also Canadian values. May this Year of the Monkey bring good health, peace creativity, and opportunities for all.
I would like to wish all Canadians of Chinese origin, including my spouse Limei: GÃ¹ng HÃ©i Faat ChÅ�i (Congratulations and be prosperous) (Cantonese)
Xu Da DJA (I wish everyone) (Mandarin)
XÄ«n NiÃ¡n KuÃ i LÃ¨ (Happy new year) (Mandarin)
NiÃ¡n NiÃ¡n KuÃ i LÃ¨ (Happy every year) (Mandarin)
TiÄ�n TiÄ�n KuÃ i LÃ¨ (Happy every day) (Mandarin)
I would like to take this opportunity to express my gratitude and appreciation to Canadians of Chinese, Vietnamese, and Korean descent, as well as to all Canadians who celebrate the Lunar New Year, from my incredibly diverse riding of New Westminster-Burnaby to all of Canada. I am thankful for their immense contributions and continuous efforts to make Canada better for us all.
