OTTAWA – Leaders’ Ledger – Thanksgiving is a time when Canadians take time away from their busy schedules and gather with loved ones to celebrate and give thanks for the many blessings we enjoy.

In Canada, we have much to be grateful for, given that we live in a safe, secure, and stable country committed to freedom, tolerance and generosity.

As we give thanks, let us also remember those less fortunate around the world who are experiencing hardships, and let us reach out to members of our own communities who are in need of a helping hand.

On this day, we must also remember and pay tribute to the brave men and women serving Canada abroad who, given their selfless dedication, will not be home for the holiday.

Laureen and I, along with our children Ben and Rachel, wish all Canadians a very Happy Thanksgiving.

Prime Minister Stephen Harper

Did you know? That Prime Minister Harper and his family are strong proponents of pet adoption? Visit Pet Adoption on the Prime Minister’s Web Site.

The Harpers are proud to support and participate in the Ottawa Humane Society’s Foster Program, which provides temporary homes for pets in the community who are not yet ready for adoption.

The program fosters out animals with mild health or behaviour issues who need individual care and nurturing to help them recover before they are adopted by new, loving foster families.

Laureen and Stephen have been foster parents to many cats during the past year. At any given time, the Harpers have provided foster care to numerous cats at their Ottawa home.
