In his annual Christmas message Saskatchewan Lieutenant Governor Russ Mirasty noted although we have experienced some difficult challenges this year we have much for which to be grateful….
“In particular, I want to thank everyone serving in the Canadian Armed Forces, police and fire services, and our first responders. I also want to thank health care professionals, educators and front-line workers for going above and beyond the call of duty throughout the pandemic. I am grateful to those serving in public office for providing leadership, especially during these uncertain times. In Saskatchewan, we are fortunate to be surrounded by generous and capable volunteers. I extend my sincere gratitude to everyone who is giving their time and energy to improve their community. I am grateful for everyone who has chosen to see challenges as opportunities to help others this year. Thank you for your inspiring examples of service.”
Mirasty also expressed his heartfelt thanks to the Elders and Survivors who shared their stories following the discovery of gravesites at former Indian Residential Schools.
