SASKATCHEWAN LAUNCHES ROYAL PUBLICATION
A publication that celebrates Saskatchewan's identity and honours the province's connection to the Monarchy, "Royal Saskatchewan: The Crown in a Canadian Province," was launched by Lieutenant Governor Dr. Gordon L. Barnhart and Provincial Secretary Joan Beatty at Government House today.
"In Saskatchewan, we recognize and value the important relationship that exists between the province and the Crown," Barnhart said. "This book will serve as an excellent resource to all those who want to know more about the role of the Sovereign within Saskatchewan and Canada."
"Royal Saskatchewan" is a 54-page reference text that illuminates the important relationship between the Crown and the people of Saskatchewan. Included in the interesting information it contains are details about the function of government, the Crown and First Nations people, and heraldry. It is comprised of more than 90 images, including photographs of The Queen and members of the Royal Family during royal visits, the Governors General of Canada and Lieutenant Governors of Saskatchewan, military and law enforcement agencies, community leaders and members of the province's multicultural community.
"This publication is a beautiful and timeless reminder of our history and the importance of heraldry among the communities and First Nations in this province," Beatty said. "I hope it serves to honour Saskatchewan's identity and the people of this province for years to come."
More information on "Royal Saskatchewan" can be obtained through the Office of Protocol and Honours at 1-877-427-5505.
