In recognition of Graham Nishikawa

On behalf of the Liberal caucus, I would also like to add my voice to those Yukoners recognizing the achievements of Graham Nishikawa here today. Graham, we salute your efforts and your dedication.

I just want to thank you personally for coming to the Assembly today so that we may extend our congratulations to you and to express our appreciation for all of your years of commitment and dedication. Thank you for so proudly and ably representing the Yukon, and thanks to all of those who have helped to make it possible — your friends and family, fellow athletes, sponsors, and, of course, the Whitehorse Cross Country Ski Club. Thank you for inspiring both future Olympians and Paralympians.

I think it is worth noting that the medal that is around your neck is, on its own, only worth its weight in gold, but as a symbol of your dedication and as a source of Yukon pride, it is absolutely priceless.
