September 7, 2018 (Edmonton) – On the second annual Ukrainian-Canadian Heritage Day, the Alberta Party Caucus is taking time to celebrate the tremendous contributions Ukrainian-Canadians have made to our province. Alberta Party MLA Greg Clark shared the following remarks on behalf of caucus.
“The story of Alberta has been one of pioneering newcomers succeeding against the odds, and Ukrainian-Canadians have been an integral part of that story.”
“Through their vibrant communities and culture, through countless contributions to civil society and the public good, and through their work to make Alberta the best place in the world to live, Canadians of Ukrainian heritage have given so much to our province.”
“On a day where our province is also deepening our ties with Ukraine with the opening of a Ukrainian Consulate in Edmonton, this Heritage day seems especially meaningful.”
“As a proud Ukrainian-Canadian myself, I’m honoured to celebrate this special day with you, and to thank you for all your contributions to our province.”
“Slava Ukraini, Slava Canada.”
