Hon. Gordon Dirks, B. Ed., M. Ed., MLA, Minister of Education, Progressive Conservative, Calgary-Elbow
I for one truly admire Genia Leskiw, MLA. She is proud of her Ukranian roots & she should be, many Ukranians & their descendants have contributed to the building of this province (including Former Premier Ed Stelmach.) Genia announced her intention to retire with her head held high a few days ago & many constituents of all ages will miss her. I will miss her as I have Ukrainian relatives myself.
"Serving on behalf of the people of this incredible province as the MLA for Bonnyville-Cold Lake has been my honour."
