November 8, 2018 (Edmonton) – The Alberta Party Caucus is joining with Albertans in remembering the contributions and sacrifices of veterans on Remembrance Day. MLA Rick Fraser gave the following remarks in recognition of those who have given their lives in service of our country.
“We are blessed in Alberta, and in Canada, to have the spirit of community service and nation building. Today is a solemn day to remember all those who have fallen or been injured in line of duty to uphold our country and to ensure that we can continue to have our great freedoms and ways of life.”
“The freedoms that we often take for granted are only possible through the past and continuing sacrifices of our citizens in uniform.”
“I encourage all Albertans to take some time and learn about the contributions our forces have made to peace and freedom across the globe. Canadians are be justifiably proud of our veterans, and have a place in their hearts for those who have paid the ultimate price, and today is a time to honour their accomplishments.”
“To all of those who have served in our armed forces, and continue to do so, I want to extend heartfelt thanks on behalf of the Alberta Party Caucus. Know that we are eternally grateful for your service and sacrifices.”
