Commissioner Of The Northwest Territories
Hon. Margaret Thom
Please be seated. Good afternoon, Madam Speaker, Premier Cochrane, Ministers, Members of the Legislative Assembly, and staff.
[English translation not available] [Translation] Thank you very much. [Translation ends] [Microphone turned off] ...your patience during these challenging times.
It is my honour to take this moment to encourage and remind everyone of the dedication and proud service made by current and past brave members of the Canadian Armed Forces. Remembrance Day is on Wednesday, November the 11th. It is a day when we remember and honour all who left their homes and families to fight for our country and, more importantly, for our freedoms. Some of these brave men and women never returned home; they died serving Canada.
As your Commissioner, I will proudly take part in the outdoor Remembrance Day ceremony at the Yellowknife Cenotaph. I will be accompanied by my aide-de-camp, and, together with others at the ceremony, we will remember and honour the fallen and their ultimate sacrifice for our country.
As this sitting comes to an end, I would like to wish each and every one of you good health, happiness, and prosperity. Please enjoy the Christmas season with your family and constituents. It will be different this year, yet it is still a joyful and blessed season. Be creative, and continue to be good role models, keeping in mind the safety protocols put in place to protect the health and safety of all residents.
In closing, may you be gifted with continued guidance and vision as you work together cooperatively for the betterment of all residents of the Northwest Territories. I wish you all safety in your journey home to your loved ones.
