Councillor T. Cartmell, on behalf of City Council, acknowledged the opening of Edmonton's first Freson Bros. grocery store in the Terwillegar neighbourhood. This Alberta success story started in Hinton in 1955 when founders F. Lovsin and F. Resek opened the doors to a small butcher shop before expanding their grocery services. Freson Bros. began opening locations across Alberta, staying true to their “family comes first” motto and their commitment to fresh, local food and warm hospitality. M. Lovsin, participating electronically, expressed excitement for the expansion.

Mayor D. Iveson, on behalf of City Council, recognized Kind Ice Cream and its founders P. Shyba, N. Bhar and C. Morris. Specializing in chef-inspired, small-batch scoops, Kind has established itself as some of the best ice cream in Edmonton. The secret ingredient in Kind’s recipe for success is amazing flavours from chef C. MacDonald alongside their investment and interest in building community. In addition to their original location in the Ritchie neighbourhood they plan to open a second location in the Highlands neighbourhood this spring. C. Morris, participating electronically, expressed gratitude for the recognition.

Mayor D. Iveson, on behalf of City Council, expressed condolences to Her Majesty The Queen and The Royal Family on the passing of His Royal Highness Prince Philip, The Duke of Edinburgh. Prince Philip valued community, duty and service throughout his life. He was passionate about celebrating and encouraging service and excellence among the younger generations and believed in the power of youth to change the world for the better. He first visited Edmonton in 1951, then again 1978 and more recently in 2005 for Alberta's Centennial. Flags will be flown at half staff to recognize his passing.

Councillor M. Banga, on behalf of City Council, recognized the month of April as Sikh Heritage Month. Vaisakhi, an important Sikh Canadian holiday marking the formalization of the Khalsa and Sikh articles of faith, is celebrated on April 13. Khalsa Day is an opportunity to remember, celebrate and educate future generations and society at large of the important role Sikh Canadians play in communities across Canada. The Sikh faith believes in the equality of all humanity and the importance in achieving social justice for all.
