2016 Christmas Message from Premier Brad Wall

Released on December 13, 2016

Christmas often brings out the best in people.  We open our hearts.  We look for opportunities to give.

But what is really amazing is the number of people who keep this Christmastime spirit alive the entire year.

I may be completely biased but I happen to think we have an abundance of those people in Saskatchewan.

Like employees at a Saskatchewan oil company, who in the middle of great financial stress in their industry, lent a helping hand.

They raised more than $130,000 to help an injured co-worker and his family when they needed that support the most.

Like the 100 year-old gentleman from Maple Creek who is not sure how many years he has been volunteering.  Maybe 40.  Maybe 50.  Maybe even 60.

And he says he’s gonna go on as long as he can.  And I believe he will.

Like the community of Meadow Lake who banded together to raise money for a local musician facing a medical crisis.

She gave the gift of her love for music to others. Now a gift of love is returning to her.

I am so proud to be a fellow citizen of this province.

I can’t say enough about the many, many people in our province who give of their time and energy to those in need of some help and maybe even some encouragement.

People who understand what it means to shine a light into someone else’s life.  Knowing that one small candle in the midst of darkness can spread light and hope.

At Christmas, we celebrate the birth of a tiny baby.  The Light of the World.

The Son of God who stepped down from heaven and came to walk among us.

To heal us, to love us, to live as we live.

And His message of love and peace has not changed in over 2000 years.

It is still the message of Christmas today.  Joy to the world.  The Lord has come.

This year let’s continue to share joy and peace, and spread love and good will to those around us.  Together let’s shine our light and make a difference.

So from me and my wife Tami, and our family, and on behalf of my colleagues in the Government of Saskatchewan: 

May the blessing of peace,

The beauty of hope, 

the spirit of love,

and the comfort of faith 

be your gift this Christmas season.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
