Jean Chretien: The Aga Khan's Diamond Jubilee is a celebration for all Canadians | Daily Hive TorontoWritten by the Rt. Hon. Jean Chrétien, Prime Minister of Canada from 1993 to 2003.

His Highness the Aga Khan is visiting Canada this month as part of an international celebration of his 60th, or “Diamond Jubilee,” anniversary as spiritual leader of the world’s Ismaili Muslims. I’ll be delighted to join past and present Canadian leaders of all political stripes in celebrations of his remarkable six decades of leadership.

Frankly, the visit also affords us all an opportunity to turn the page from domestic political squabbles to what’s really important: the Aga Khan’s vital and ongoing global contribution to the most important project of our time, promoting pluralism and understanding in a fractured and angry world.
