Service of Remembrance at the Alberta Legislature on November 9
EDMONTON – Speaker Nathan Cooper will host a public service of remembrance on November 9, 2023, at 11 a.m. in the Legislature Building rotunda.
“I encourage all Albertans to pause and honour the courage and sacrifice of those who have served and who continue to serve as defenders of peace, human rights, freedom and justice,” said Speaker Cooper. “The service of remembrance gives us time to reflect upon and recognize the contributions of our Canadian Armed Forces and peacekeepers around the world.”
Remarks will be delivered by Honorable Nathan Cooper, Speaker of the Legislative Assembly of Alberta; Justin Wright, MLA for Cypress-Medicine Hat (on behalf of the Premier of Alberta); and Honourable Rachel Notley, Leader of His Majesty’s Loyal Opposition.
Wreaths will be laid on behalf of Members of the Legislative Assembly, Alberta Association of Former MLAs, the Royal Canadian Legion, Canadian Corps of Commissionaires, Alberta Union of Provincial Employees and the youth of Alberta. The service will also include participation by the Royal Canadian Legion Colour Party, Lord Strathcona’s Horse and the Salvation Army.
Members of the public, active service members and all veterans, including Edmonton Police Service veterans, are invited to attend. For those unable to attend in person, the service will be live streamed on assembly.ab.ca and on the Legislative Assembly’s X, Facebook and YouTube channels.
Following the service event photos will be uploaded to flickr.com/photos/legassemblyofab/.
