2019 Christmas Message from His Honour the Honourable Russ Mirasty Lieutenant Governor of Saskatchewan

Tuesday, Dec. 10, 2019
Tansi.  Hello.  I’m honoured to represent Canada’s Queen in Saskatchewan, and to share some thoughts with you at this special time of year.
 
First, I want to thank everyone who has given Donna and me such a warm welcome to their communities. We’ve taken part in many events, and at each one, we’ve been very impressed by the generosity of Saskatchewan people. Our province relies on volunteers, and I want to thank everyone who donates their time to improve their community.
 
I also want to acknowledge the men and women who serve in our military, and as police officers and first responders. We rely on you, and we are grateful for your service.
 
I’m often asked about Reconciliation. I’m encouraged by how many people truly want to see change. I continue to believe that relationships are the key. My thanks to everyone who is reaching out to others, and trying to see things from a new perspective. We are only at the beginning of this journey, but I am hopeful.
 
Donna and I are looking forward to seeing more of our beautiful province, and meeting more of our remarkable people in the coming year.
 
I warmly invite you to join us in Regina on January 1st for our New Year’s Day Celebration at Government House. Everyone is welcome! 
 
Season’s Greetings, from my family to yours.
