State­ment from Pre­mier Not­ley

Prairie Post (East Edition) - - Swift Current -

Pre­mier Rachel Not­ley is­sued the fol­low­ing state­ment on Vet­er­ans’ Week:

“Dur­ing Vet­er­ans’ Week, we pay trib­ute to the women and men who have served our coun­try in times of war and peace, in Canada and around the world.

“We com­mem­o­rate those vet­er­ans who have given their lives in bat­tle, on peace­keep­ing missions, in times of nat­u­ral dis­as­ter and in the midst of hu­man­i­tar­ian cri­sis.

“Equally, we salute vet­er­ans who have re­turned, as wit­nesses of his­tory’s up­heaval, as keep­ers of hal­lowed me­mory, through their per­sonal chal­lenges and tri­umphs.

“In Al­berta, we also re­mem­ber the re­cent sup­port of the Cana­dian Armed Forces, dur­ing the floods of 2013 and the Fort McMur­ray-area wild­fires of 2016.

“This week, we will see our vet­er­ans march in hon­our of those who sac­ri­ficed be­fore them or with them. Ev­ery step they take is a ven­er­a­tion of peace, free­dom and the val­ues of our na­tion. Let us hon­our them – with our sup­port, re­spect and grat­i­tude.

“On be­half of the Gov­ern­ment of Al­berta, to all cur­rent and re­tired mem­bers of our mil­i­tary and their fam­i­lies, here in Al­berta and across Canada, thank you.

“Lest we for­get.”
