The Christmas holiday is upon us and it is a special time for everyone in our communities. It is a time to be with family and loved ones and to rejoice in the celebrations of a merry season.

Christmas is also a time for remembrances and to love the memories of those who are no longer with us - our mothers, daughters, sons and fathers and everyone in between. We've had the losses of many honourable elders and leaders in the past year and we must be thankful for their grace, honour and service to our people.
