Canada Day Celebrations! – July 1, 2018

It’s always an honour to participate in local parades. I was able to take some time and volunteer at Thorhild’s Canada Day Rodeo and then later at the Athabasca River Rats festival. I hope everyone had a happy Canada Day! 

Statement on the tragedy in Thorhild County this morning

I want to express my deepest condolences to the family and friends of the young women who tragically lost her life in Thorhild County this morning, and to all those in the school and broader community impacted by this loss. Tragedies like this remind us of how precious and fragile life is and the importance of coming together to support each other in such an irreparable loss.
