FREDERICTON (GNB) – The following message was issued today by Premier Brian Gallant for Canada Day, Saturday, July 1:
This Canada Day marks a milestone in history as we celebrate the 150th anniversary of Confederation.
On July 1, communities will gather together in celebration of all that we have accomplished over the last 150 years in building and fortifying a nation with an innovative economy, many educational opportunities, and strong health care.
Throughout the world, Canada is known for its kind-natured people, beautiful landscapes and commitment to diversity and peace. As one of Canada’s four founding provinces, we proudly pay tribute to New Brunswick’s many contributions to the country, made possible by our greatest asset, our people.
We encourage all New Brunswickers to spend this Canada Day with family and friends and to participate in the events and festivities taking place across the province.
On behalf of the Government of New Brunswick, we wish you all a safe and happy Canada Day.
