Calgary, AB (February 26, 2016): “I was saddened to learn today of the passing of former Premier Don Getty and my thoughts and prayers are with his family,” said Swann.
“Don served Albertans with commitment and dedication for many years as MLA, Cabinet Minister and, of course, premier. Don was tasked with guiding the province through challenging economic times, much like today’s. He’s also fondly remembered by the Lubicon people for his efforts on their behalf.”
“As a youngster, I remember watching him guide the Eskimos to the Grey Cup championship. He brought that energy and leadership to his career in politics.”
“Don was dedicated to Alberta and all Albertans, he will be missed.”
