Market Overview

My goal is to be on stage with my computer and let you
see my screen and make sure you know what buttons to
press, where you’re getting in & out, how to calculate
risk, your targets — all of those things.
It’s real-life trading. Make sure you sign up!

Statement by Minister Rodriguez on Vesak


Today Buddhists across Canada and around the world are celebrating Vesak

OTTAWA, May 19, 2019 /CNW/ - Today, on the occasion of Vesak, Buddhists across Canada and around the world are commemorating the birth, enlightenment and passing of Gautama Buddha, the founder of Buddhism.

Vesak, the most important festival in the Buddhist calendar, is an opportunity for people to come together and reflect on the Buddha's universal teachings of peace, compassion and caring, especially for those less fortunate. Across the nation, Canadians from all walks of life can take inspiration from these shared values, which unite us and help make Canada such a great place to live and a country we are proud of.

I invite all Canadians to learn more about the sacred holiday of Vesak and the tremendous richness of our communities. It is a wonderful opportunity to show how our diversity is one of Canada's biggest strengths and how much we all benefit from this country's spirit of openness and inclusion.

As Minister of Canadian Heritage and Multiculturalism, I extend my best wishes to all Canadians celebrating Vesak.
