Premier Rachel Notley issued the following statement extending best wishes to Albertans on Family Day:
“Every February since 1990, Alberta has set aside a special day to celebrate families and the vital role they have played in building this great province.
“Whether you spend Family Day with your kids, parents, brothers and sisters, or spend it with your friends, teammates and colleagues, may this day bring you closer and make you happier.
“Our family bonds are important. They make a house a home, they encourage the next generation to excel, and they help us all shape a more prosperous and secure future.
“This Family Day, let’s celebrate the families, past and present, big and small, formal and informal, that help make Alberta such a fun, vibrant and welcoming place to live.
“Happy Family Day!”
