Statement from Premier Jim Prentice on Family Day

Premier Jim Prentice issued the following statement as Albertans celebrate the 25th anniversary of the provincial Family Day holiday on February 16.

“No matter what direction we may take in life, we are fundamentally shaped by family. In family, we find the source of our identity, the learning ground of tradition, the frame of memory and a living hope for the future. Strong families teach us to live with others, to value differences and to believe in ourselves. They are the foundation of strong communities, and a stronger Alberta.

“I encourage all Albertans to celebrate family, and all its unique joys, on Family Day.”
