“Diversity makes Alberta great. We celebrate that on Canadian Multiculturalism Day.
“This year is especially significant because it marks the 30th anniversary of the Canadian Multiculturalism Act.
“Alberta is a province that has welcomed generation after generation of immigrants from around the world who joined the First Nations and Inuit who originally lived here.
“While we have differences, we also share the belief that all people are created equal and should coexist in peace and prosperity.
“I’m proud of my ethnic heritage. My family is part of Alberta’s rich and vibrant mosaic of people from different backgrounds.
“Today we celebrate our diversity. Every day we must strive for even greater inclusivity.”
