November XXth, MMXIV
Hon. Gordon Dirks, B. Ed., M. Ed., MLA, Minister of Education, Progressive Conservative, Calgary-Elbow
My late mother June C. Koopmans, B. Ed. would loved to have met Yvonne Jones, MP. Mom suffered a brain stroke & died, but during her life, she like many Canadians had to deal with diabetes & its crippling affects. This disease knows no boundaries & can happen whether you are a student, a senior, or anywhere in between. Today, Yvonne gives a shout out of thanks to folks working to fight this terrible disorder & make their daily lives better.
"I ask my colleagues to join me in extending our thanks to all of those people who work hard as volunteers to bring awareness to diabetes & to help raise money to fight this terrible disease in Canada."
