Today we heard the resignation speech of our Minister of the Environment, the Honourable Jim Prentice. After 9 years in public office he is leaving to become the vice-chairman of the CIBC bank beginning in January of 2011.
The Prime Minister paid tribute to his great contributions to our nation under 3 portfolios during his time in government, Minister for Indian Affairs, Minister of Industry, and Minister of the Environment.
Let us pray for him and his wife Karen as they move onto other spheres. May the Lord give them many new and godly friendships in those new roles.
Let us also pray for our Prime Minister as he will now need to fill this important vacancy in his Cabinet. May God give him great wisdom to find the right person who can help our nation become better stewards of creation.
