TORONTO — Today, Doug Ford, Premier of Ontario, issued the following statement on Yom Kippur:

"Tonight at sunset, the Jewish community will begin to observe the holiest day in the Hebrew calendar, Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement.

This solemn and sacred holiday is a time for reflection, rest, and atonement for Jewish people in Ontario and around the world.

I wish all those observing an easy fast and the caring support from loved ones to start the new year with a clean slate."
