In Congratulatory Message, Canada Says it is Libya's Partner.
He went on to say: "In just one year, the Libyan people have realised a dramatic transformation in their country. Although there is much work to be done, Libyans have laid the foundation to build a more inclusive, open and democratic society."
"The upcoming elections, expected in June, will provide a historic opportunity to continue that work. The courage and sacrifice of the Libyan people secured a better and brighter future for themselves and their fellow citizens. They turned the page on a brutal, repressive dictator who ruled their country and tormented the Libyan people for over 40 years," Mr Baird added:
"Canada is proud to have played a leading role in the UN-sanctioned NATO mission that helped protect civilians during the liberation of Libya," Mr Baird said.
