Thanks to everyone who helped with Canada Day celebrations

Thank you to Red Deer Mayor Morris Flewwelling for mentioning the need to be courteous of others in his Canada Day speech at Bower Ponds. That was so surprising and I am grateful.

Thanks also to the RCMP for their presence. I saw them drive by a few times, down laneways and on the road.

I am sure that a lot of older people who live on the Kerry Wood side of Fairview felt a lot safer because of the police presence.

Thanks to the commissionaires. Rotating their staff is a good idea. They were “fresh” all day long and did what was expected and turned people away who did not have parking passes.

Yes, a few got through, but not the number that usually block the roads.

Thank you to the City of Red Deer bus driver of bus No. 337. After a bus or two drove right by a bunch of moms and dads and kids in strollers, he went the extra mile and took these people to their destination in Oriole Park!

Thank you to our neighbours who have family and friends over every July 1. You make it safe for many to enjoy Canada Day and you care about the neighbourhood as well.

Respect is what it is all about.

Respect for each other. Respect for new Canadians. Respect for property owners.

Just consideration and respect — that is what Canada Day is about.

That is what every day in Canada should be about.

Thank you for everyone who listened to and acted in regards to our concerns for this day. We actually were able to enjoy the day too.

Let’s do it again next year.
