This is a very special time of year for many students in my Regina—Lewvan riding and across Canada.
To all who are graduating from high school, convocating at university, completing your trade certificate, celebrating the end of grade eight and, yes, even to our little kindergarten graduates, congratulations. These milestones are something to be celebrated. Even though most commencement ceremonies are not currently possible due to limitations on gatherings, this year's graduates need to be and should be recognized. They have been through a lot over the past three months.
I want to take this opportunity today to acknowledge both their accomplishments and their sacrifices. The class of 2020 is just one of many groups in this country that have put their own desires to the side so that we can follow through on our mission to end the spread of COVID-19.
The selflessness, maturity and leadership shown, especially by our grade 12 grads, have been nothing short of admirable.
Congratulations to all classes of 2020 graduates. We are very excited to see what the future holds for you all.
