Remembrance Service at the Alberta Legislature November 9
Edmonton—“Through the act of remembrance we recognize the efforts of those who have answered their country’s call of duty in times of war,” said the Honourable Ken Kowalski, Speaker of the Legislative Assembly. “The sacrifices made by men and women during service with the Canadian Armed Forces should never be forgotten.”
Speaker Kowalski will host the traditional Remembrance Ceremony in the rotunda of the Legislature Building at 11 a.m. on Thursday, November 9.
The Honourable Ralph Klein, Premier; Dr. Kevin Taft, Leader of Her Majesty’s Loyal Opposition; and Mr. Brian Mason, Leader of the Third Party Opposition, will participate in the service. The Legislative Assembly is also honoured to welcome an ensemble from the Salvation Army Edmonton Temple Corps and students from Lynnwood Elementary School.
Wreaths will be laid on behalf of the Legislative Assembly of Alberta; the Royal Canadian Legion, the Canadian Corps of Commissionaires, the Alberta Union of Provincial Employees and the youth of Alberta in memory of those Albertans from all walks of life who gave their lives for freedom in the First and Second World Wars, the Korean War, and the many United Nations and NATO operations to preserve peace and order.
Members of the public are welcome to attend.
