Provincial Point of View
October 2, 2018


Thanksgiving Day in Canada has been a holiday on the second Monday of October since 1957. It is a chance for people to give thanks for a good harvest and other fortunes in the past year.

I hope this Thanksgiving finds you with plenty of reasons to give thanks. Please take time to enjoy family and friends and take a few moments to give thanks to everyone who has sacrificed to make our world a warm and happier place. Appreciation can change the moment, the day or even change a life! Enjoy this special weekend and take time to celebrate this holiday of peace while reflecting on how fortunate we are to live in Saskatchewan.

This weekend always makes me think of the end of harvest and the many delicious fall suppers I attended in Blaine Lake and many communities across the province. Traditions like fall suppers hold fond memories of neighbours and friends getting together to enjoy fantastic food and fellowship.

Trish, Carter, Paige and I wish you blessings of health and happiness and send you our warmest wishes for a plentiful Thanksgiving!
