“New Brunswick Day is a time to be with family, friends and neighbours. I will be participating in the official celebrations for New Brunswick Day in St. Stephen with my family.

We live in a beautiful part of the world, with a strong sense of community and an unshakable attachment to home. Our strength is our people, active in the life of their communities and engaged as citizens of New Brunswick.

New Brunswick faces challenges, but as long as our belief in ourselves and our communities is rock solid, the opportunities to overcome and surpass those challenges are plentiful. With common purpose and meaningful action to reconcile with First Nations we will thrive. Solutions are all around and within each of us. To act on them, we need to work together in community.

This New Brunswick Day, let’s reflect on those things we appreciate most about our province and give thanks.”
