Parliament of Canada Pays Tribute to Ed Anderson

Today I gave a Members Statement in the House of Commons to celebrate the tremendous legacy and accomplishments of Ed Anderson. Ed recently stepped down as the Mayor of Boissevain-Morton after 38 years of being involved in municipal politics.

Ed is a good friend and has worked tirelessly to make Boissevain-Morton a better place to live. His commitment and dedication to his community is a shining example to all Canadians.

The Member Statement that Maguire gave in the House of Commons read:

I rise today to pay tribute to my friend, Ed Anderson, who recently retired as the Mayor of Boissevain-Morton. First elected to town council in 1980, Ed has served as mayor since 1994. Altogether, that is 38 years of continuous public service. During his tenure the community has built a new water plant, a new fire hall, a new library, a new theatre, a new recycling building, and much more.

When the community was in need, Ed rolled up his sleeves and attracted a physician and two new veterinarians to town. And with Ed at the helm, Boissevain is now known for its beauty, winning multiple Communities in Bloom awards. I want to thank Ed for his incredible commitment to the people of Boissevain. The town is certainly better off than it was 38 years ago, and that is a tribute to his leadership. I wish him all the best in his retirement and want to thank his wife Lynn and daughters Erin and Darcy for lending their father during his time of public service.
