“Thanksgiving provides all of us the opportunity to take time out of our busy lives to remember what’s truly important.

“As Albertans, we have much to be thankful for: the families and friends around us, the opportunity to enjoy the natural beauty throughout our province, the freedom to worship as we choose and the ability to work in our chosen fields and pursue world-class education.

“Alberta is a place where everyone, no matter their origins, can take part in the Alberta advantage and our province’s shared prosperity.

“In whatever way you celebrate today and with whoever you spend the day, I want to wish everyone a safe and happy Thanksgiving.”
