Thank you to those public safety personnel who are working Christmas Day 2020 to keep us safe. While we are opening presents and eating they are out patrolling, answering phone calls and ready to fight fires if needed.

Thank you to correctional officers, nurses and doctors who are working taking care of those in custody or in hospitals on Christmas.

Thank you to the linemen from Versant Power and those in the customer service center who are dealing with the power outages from the wind and attempting to restore power as quickly and safely as possible.

A special thanks to those with seniority, or those without children who volunteered to work on Christmas so their younger co-workers could be home with their young families to see what Santa had brought.

Thank you too, to families of those working, who are adjusting the days they celebrate Christmas, open presents late, eat a family meal at the station etc.

My hope is you all have a very quiet and safe Christmas
