Proclamation

WHEREAS August 9th is recognized as National Peacekeepers Day; and

WHEREAS on August 9th, 1974 a United Nations-marked Canadian transport aircraft was shot down during Peacekeeping duties, ultimately killing all nine personnel on board.  It was and still is the largest loss of Canadian Peacekeepers in a single day; and

WHEREAS the United Nations flag is raised and flown on August 9th to honour the memory of the many Canadians who have given their lives in the service of peace.  It also demonstrates our continued support of the brave men and women who are currently on active duty in foreign lands; and

WHEREAS Captain Keith Mirau of Gull Lake, Saskatchewan was among the nine Canadian peacekeepers who lost his life on that day; and

WHEREAS we honour his sacrifice and the sacrifices made by his family and loved ones at home.

THEREFORE, I, Blake Campbell, Mayor of the Town of Gull Lake, do hereby proclaim August 9th as Captain Keith Mirau Day in the Town of Gull Lake and urge all citizens to recognize the efforts made by all those who serve our country with honour.

    On behalf of Keith’s immediate and extended family, we would like to sincerely thank the people of Gull Lake, Mayor Campbell and Town Council, Tom Frook and all the others who were involved in declaring August 9 as Captain Keith Mirau Day. We sincerely appreciate your actions and efforts. Hilda and Arnold, Keith’s and our parents would have been pleased with this recognition, as are we. We very much look to seeing the plaque that has been erected. Gull Lake was always home to Keith and still is to us. Thank you very much.
    Garth and Neil Mirau,
