I was in attendance at yesterdays Speech from the Throne and was delighted to see that the Lieutenant Governor was wearing the Civil Uniform in it's full splendour. This is the first time the LG has worn the Civil Uniform since 1974.
Your Government was also used throughout the speech.
"The civil uniform was worn by Alberta's Lieutenant Governors from 1905 to 1974. From 1987 to 1991, the Honourable Helen Hunley wore a specially designed ceremonial robe in place of a civil uniform. In February 2012, Lieutenant Governor Donald S. Ethell reintroduced the tradition. His civil uniform was acquired from Nova Scotia and was given to Alberta on extended loan for the use of Lieutenant Governor Ethell. The uniform once belonged to the Honourable Victor de Bedia Oland who served as Lieutenant Governor of Nova Scotia from 1968 to 1973."
