“We all expect to return home safely to our families at the end of each work day but tragically, 144 fellow Albertans’ lives were cut short on the job this year,” said Ric McIver, Progressive Conservative Caucus Leader and MLA for Calgary-Hays. “We remember those Albertans and their vast contributions to our province. Our thoughts remain with their families, friends and colleagues.”
The Progressive Conservative caucus remains committed to working with job creators and employees to improve workplace health and safety across Alberta.
“Even one workplace death or injury is one too many,” said Prab Gill, Progressive Conservative Labour Critic and MLA for Calgary-Greenway. “Thousands of Albertans are impacted by these incidents every year. The National Day of Mourning is an important time for our caucus, as we remember our dear friend and colleague, Manmeet Bhullar, who lost his life on his way to serve his constituents at the Alberta Legislature. His dedication and commitment remains a source of inspiration for our caucus and we stand united with all Alberta workers, and their families, on this important day.”
