Liberal Leader David Khan's Statement on Bullying Awareness Week

Calgary, AB (NOVEMBER 14, 2017): Alberta Liberal Leader David Khan released the following statement to mark Bullying Awareness Week:

“The theme for this year’s Bullying Awareness Week is ‘Stand Up.’ Every day, Albertan youth are victims of bullying, harassment, and discrimination, and I join with leaders across the province in standing up to promote healthy relationships.

“The consequences of bullying are numerous and long-lasting, including its effect on a victim's long-term mental health. Bullied youth are at an increased risk of developing a psychiatric disorder and to suffer from depression as an adult.

“We must remember that often the best shelter for bullied and harassed youth is a strong support network of friends, mentors, and loved ones. Every Albertan deserves a space where they feel safe and cared for, and we should constantly strive to provide that space to those around us, especially the most vulnerable.”

 


Remembrance Day

CALGARY, AB (November 11, 2017): Alberta Liberal Leader David Khan released the following statement on Remembrance Day:

“One hundred years ago on this day, exhausted Canadian troops were recuperating from a long and bloody battle. After three long months, and at a cost of over 15,000 lives, the Belgian town of Passchendaele was in Allied hands. While today the fields of Passchendaele are peaceful and green, Canadians in 1917 looked out over a blasted hellscape.

“Today we remember those who served and those who continue to serve with honour in places like Passchendaele, Normandy, Korea, and Afghanistan. For many, their lives are cut tragically short in service to their country. Others return to Canada wounded physically and emotionally. We owe them all a tremendous debt of gratitude and should do everything we can to support them and their families.

“We must always remember the horrific costs of war, and always strive for peace.”

Lest we forget.”
