Andrew Wilkinson's Statement on India Republic Day

VANCOUVER - BC Liberal Leadership candidate Andrew Wilkinson issued the following statement to commemorate India Republic Day: 

"Sixty-nine years ago, today, the course of history changed as the Constitution of India paved the way for the new Republic to become the world's largest democracy.

"British Columbia is fortunate to enjoy a warm and thriving relationship with India based on shared economic interests, democratic values, and strong people-to-people ties. From the first pioneers to more recent newcomers to our province, British Columbia's Indo-Canadian community has been instrumental in helping to build our prosperous and multicultural society.

"My very best wishes to everyone celebrating India Republic Day."
