I am delighted to extend my warmest congratulations as you celebrate the launch of the new television series Aaj Kal — Mirror of our Times. Produced by the CanAsian Times, and airing on VisionTV Saturdays at 10:00 AM EST, this weekly program will offer viewers rich cultural content with a South Asian focus.
Numbering over a mission strong, Canada’s South Asian community is a valued part of our great nation. Aaj Kal will deliver insightful commentary on matters of particular interest to South Asian Canadians. This venue will also serve as an important touchstone, uniting the community around matters of shared concern and celebration
Aaj Kal is in keeping with VisionTV’s longstanding commitment to the production of diverse, independent, Canadian content. Innovative, high-quality multi-ethnic and multi-religious programming serves an important role as a forum for Canada’s diverse cultural communities.
On behalf of the Government of Canada, I commend the CanAsian Times and VisionTV for this laudable investment in the community.
The Rt. Hon. Stephen Harper, P.C., M.P.
Prime Minister of Canada
