Seollal Greetings from the Prime Minister
I am delighted to extend my warmest greetings to members of the Korean
Community Association of Ottawa on the occasion of Seollal.
The new year is a time to reflect on the past, to pay tribute to ancestors and to
honour traditions. It is also a time to celebrate our present good fortune with
family and friends, while embracing a future bright with promise.
Here in Canada, this is an occasion to highlight the contributions the Korean-
Canadian community has made to our national life. Your commitment to hard
work, devotion to family, loyalty to tradition, and optimism for the future
strengthen our society and are an inspiration to all Canadians.
On behalf of the Government of Canada, Laureen and I offer you our best wishes
for peace, prosperity, health and happiness for the Year of the Sheep.
The Rt. Hon. Stephen Harper, P.C., M.P. Prime Minister of Canada
