“It is with much sadness that we have learned of Premier Stelmach’s plans not to seek re-election as premier of Alberta. In addition to having been a lifelong public servant, Premier Stelmach has been a tireless supporter of the Ukrainian Canadian community,” stated Ukrainian Canadian Congress – Alberta Provincial Council President Daria Luciw.  “A proud Albertan and a tireless champion for the people of this province, Ed Stelmach is highly respected as was shown in his landslide election victory in 2008.  I want to thank Ed for his caring, devotion and leadership as premier and wish him well in his future endeavours.” Full text
