Canada Day Message

Posted on July 1, 2020 6:55 am


On behalf of the First District staff, I would like to take this opportunity to wish you and your families a very safe and happy Canada Day. 

I know that it won’t be the typical celebrations that we are used to, but together with the strength and support of each other we can make it through these difficult times.  As we navigate through the unprecedented worldwide pandemic and bear witness to the wide spread civil unrest in the United States and countless other conflicts around the globe it is comforting to know we live in the best country in the world.

Please take some time to get some much needed rest and celebrate with your loved ones, but please do it safely by adhering to your local, provincial or federal health officials guidelines that are in place where you live.

Thank you for all that you do for the benefit of our members, the advancement of the IBEW, the labour movement, and society as a whole.

In solidarity,

Tom Reid
