Heritage Day: Premier Kenney
Premier Jason Kenney issued the following statement to recognize Heritage Day:
“Heritage Day is a great moment to celebrate our province’s history and achievement.
“From Indigenous Peoples who first established communities here to pioneers from every corner of the world, Alberta has been a place where people have come to build their lives and thrive. It has become a home to countless people who have come here to build a better life for themselves and their families.
“From the onion-domed churches that dot our Prairies to the first mosque in Canada in 1938, our province celebrates those who came with a diversity of beliefs and faiths, all working toward this shared Alberta dream.
“Alberta has not been perfect, and we must continue to confront the mistakes made in the past.
“But that does not change the fact that together, we have built the greatest place in the world to live, work and raise a family.
“This Heritage Day, let us all appreciate and celebrate everything that makes us proud to be Albertan.”
