FREDERICTON (GNB) – The following message was issued by Premier Blaine Higgs in recognition of Family Day, Feb. 20:

Family Day offers us the opportunity to focus on the people who matter the most in our lives.

The support of my own family, including my wife Marcia, my daughters, and my grandchildren, make my life better every day. Moments spent with loved ones can make a positive difference at any time.

I encourage all New Brunswickers to spend time this weekend connecting with family and friends in whatever way they can.

On behalf of Marcia and my family, I wish you a safe and happy Family Day!
