Statement by Premier Dalton McGuinty on prayer in the Legislature
Earlier this year I asked a Legislative Committee to look for a more inclusive approach to the daily Opening Ceremonies of the Ontario Legislature.
I want to thank the members of the committee for their hard work and the many Ontarians who expressed their views about their Legislature.
Ontarians have shown once again that with a spirit of cooperation and goodwill, we can resolve anything. And that's what has been done today.
We have come together the Ontario way -- recognizing our traditions and heritage while embracing and celebrating our diversity.
The Legislature belongs to all of us and now its practices will reflect a modern Ontario that is home to many faiths and creeds, and anticipates a future every bit as open, and compassionate and respectful as the Ontario we have built, together.
