Local Canada Day Celebrations Get Federal Cash
Our country celebrates it's 145th birthday on Sunday.
Peace River M-P Chris Warkentin says Canada Day is not only a day to celebrate what is great about our country, but to also take time to thank those who have made it the best place in the world to live.
"[Those] who've fought and have worked so hard to ensure that those values continue. And I think that Canada Day is a celebration but I think it's also a time to remember all those folks that've worked so hard to make Canada the great country that it is."
Canada Day celebrations in nine Peace region communities recently received a boost in the form of funding from the federal government. Over $34,000 will be shelled out, including over $14,000 for events in Grande Prairie.
