Across Alberta there will be ceremonies on November 11 to show our gratitude and appreciation to all those who served, and who continue to serve, so that we may live freely. I am humbled to once again attend the annual Remembrance Day Service at the Killarney Glengarry Community Association hosted by the Millennium Branch 289 of the Royal Canadian Legion and lay a wreath in honour of those who have made the greatest sacrifice for their home and country. To all our veterans, thank you.
The commencement of the fall legislative session means that the bulk of my time this month will be spent in Edmonton where I am working hard to ensure that our government is doing all we can to make your life better. But I will also continue to advocate for Calgary Currie here at home. This month I am meeting with local childcare providers to discuss how they can become $25/day Early Leaning and Child Care centres in our riding. On Fridays I will also continue to visit local non-profits, service providers, and schools - like Clearwater Academy - to ensure that all Albertans’ needs are being met.
Finally, I would like to thank the many families, disability advocates, and associations from across our province who added their names to a petition supporting my proposed Private Member's bill. Last month when the petition closed, over 500 of you had added your names in an effort to make Henson Trust legislation a reality: thank you. And thank you to the many residents of Calgary Currie who took the time out of your busy schedules to attend my Pizza Open House last week - it was great to catch up. Now that the municipal election campaign is over (thank you to all who put their names forward to serve the public good) you will once again find me knocking your doors!
