As we begin to enter the holiday season, I want to take a moment to wish all my constituents
and their families a very happy holiday! Whether you are celebrating Christmas, Hanukkah, or
any other holiday, (or simply taking a few days rest) our winter traditions are one of the things
that binds families and communities together.

It is also a time of reflection as 2018 leaves us. 2018 was a busy year for Alberta and particular
for provincial politics, with a great deal of progress made within the United Conservative Party
and our opposition team. We look forward to 2019 which will offer us the chance to bring our
alternative proposal about restoring the Alberta Advantage in the upcoming provincial election.

No matter how you celebrate during the holidays, I hope you will take the time to embrace the
winter season with friends and family. Be sure to go out and enjoy the winter wonderland
around us (weather permitting, of course). Many communities have family skating times, or
other holiday events which offer great opportunities for the kids to socialize, and for the adults
to take a moment’s break.

In closing, please allow me to wish you a very happy holiday, much joy with your families and all
the best for the new year ahead.
