Calendar of Events I am proud and humbled to serve as your new President. Following in Directeur Mario Harel's footsteps will be no easy feat. I thank him for his outstanding leadership and guidance on issues ranging from addressing the fentanyl crisis to preparing police agencies for the upcoming legalization of cannabis. He has positioned the CACP well to move to the next level. I'm so pleased that he will be staying on the Board as our Past President to help us do that. To our outgoing Past President, Chief Clive Weighill (Rtd), Saskatoon Police Service and Board members, Assistant Commissioner Jim Gresham, RCMP, Chief Roger Chaffin, Calgary Police Service, Assistant Commissioner Scott Kolody, RCMP, Chief Jennifer Evans, Peel Regional Police Serivce, Directeur Pierre Brochet, Laval Police Service, Chief Paul Fiander, Miramichi Police Force, Assistant Commissioner Peter Clark, RCMP, and Chief Superintendent Mike Jeffrey, RCMP I offer, on behalf of all members of the CACP, a sincere thank you for your generous contributions. To our incoming Board members, Assistant Commissioner Dwayne McDonald, RCMP, Chief Mark Neufeld, Camrose Police Service, Chief Danny Smyth, Winnipeg Police Service, Chief Charles Bordeleau, Ottawa Police Service, Directeur Helen Dion, Service de police de Repentigny, Chief Wayne Gallant, Kennebecasis Regional Police Force, Chief Joe Boland, Royal Newfoundland Constabulary, and Chief Superintendent Jamie Zettler, RCMP, welcome. I look forward to working with you and the members who will remain on the Board for the second half of their terms to build on the strong foundations we have in place. I would like to also say a special thank you to the host committee of the 2018 annual conference, led by Chief Jean-Michel Blais, Halifax Regional Police, Chief Superintendent Lee Bergerman, RCMP, and Brigadier General Simon Trudeau, Canadian Forces Provost Marshall, and to the CACP National Office team. Although the events in Fredericton cast a shadow on the conference and on attendees, your efforts and enthusiasm produced a WOW event that will be remembered for a long time to come. I look forward to drawing on the collective strengths of police leaders across the country to have a positive impact on the justice system and to ensure Canadians can continue to enjoy living, working and playing in safe communities. And while we work collectively on high-level safety issues that affect the country, I want to always acknowledge the important day-to-day work of our front-line police officers. There are different challenges and issues faced by police agencies in different regions of the country. Every day, our front-line members deal with these challenges and issues head-on to fight crime and provide support to vulnerable, at-risk people. Together, let's continue to provide them with the support and leadership they need to keep the public and each other safe.
