Parkland County Names Their Newest Park After ‘Constable Chelsey Robinson’
September 23, 2016
OTTAWA: Jim Eglinski, Member of Parliament for Yellowhead, advised the House on Parkland County’s naming of their newest park in memory of Constable Chelsey Robinson.
On September 23rd, MP Eglinski made the following statement in the House of Commons:
“Mr. Speaker, it is great to be back with my fellow colleagues from across Canada.
Tomorrow, September 24, Parkland County in my riding of Yellowhead will be holding a grand opening ceremony for its newest park. I was extremely moved to learn that local residents voted to name this park ‘Constable Chelsey Robinson Park’.
Constable Robinson, aged 25, was a member of the RCMP for only seven months when she lost her life in the line of duty. For a member who paid the ultimate sacrifice, I am confident that the naming of this park will keep her memory close to the hearts of her family, friends, and community.
Although I am unable to attend in person, I look forward to visiting the park personally to pay my respects to the memory of Constable Robinson.”
