Have a Blessed and Safe Family Day Long Weekend

What does Family Day mean to me?  Family Day is a tremendous opportunity to spend time with those that mean the most in our lives.  If I have learned anything in my life, it is that we must cherish the time we have with our loved ones.

It is important to think of those that are hurting this Family Day long weekend.  I am struck in particular by the recent loss of Michael Green, co founder of One Yellow Rabbit theatre company.

While I did not have a personal relationship with Mr. Green, I am grateful for his role as a pioneer for Calgary theatre.  Some have described Mr. Green as the father of creativity in Alberta.  Calgary is a better place today because of people like Michael Green.  My sincerest thoughts and prayers go out to the Green family during their time of loss.  I know that the Calgarians will wrap their arms around the Green family during this difficult time.

This long weekend is so much more than just an extra day away from the office.  On behalf of the entire Ward 12 team, I wish everyone a blessed and safe Family Day long weekend with your loved ones.
