Dear Lord. Thank you for
Buckley Belanger and his long dedication to the work of the Legislature and the
people of Saskatchewan. We pray that this would be a season of deeper
introspection for him. May he learn from his own experiences and adjust in order
to be more intentional with the people he loves. Bless him in his work at the
Legislature and in his personal life. Amen.
Buckley Belanger was first elected to the Saskatchewan legislature in 1995 and re-elected in 1999, 2003, 2007, and 2011 and 2016.
