Kwanzaa: Statement from Premier Notley

Premier Rachel Notley issued the following statement to express her best wishes for Kwanzaa: 

“Today marks the beginning of Kwanzaa, a week-long celebration of pan-African heritage and culture.

“The principles of Kwanzaa – unity, self-determination, purpose, collective work and responsibility, cooperative economics, creativity and faith – are goals to inspire all Albertans as we celebrate the many facets of our diverse society.

“To all celebrating Kwanzaa, I wish you a joyful celebration with family and friends.

“Happy Kwanzaa!”
