“This Hannukah, we celebrated the power of light over darkness that triumphs over all difficulties,” says Stephen Lecce, MPP for King-Vaughan. “This is the story of the Jewish people who have overcome adversity every step of the way. As we see a rise in Antisemitism, we remain committed to standing together with the Jewish community of King-Vaughan who have contributed so much to our province.”
