Canada Lands Company Dedicates New Street To Stanley A. Milner

Posted On: 18.10.01

Canada Lands Company, in collaboration with the South Alberta Light Horse Regiment, officially named a new street in the Village at Griesbach community in honour of prominent Edmontonian Stanley A. Milner and the Milner family on September 22nd, 2018.  



The dedication ceremony, held at William Griesbach Training Centre, marked another in a long line of community tributes recognizing the military legacy of the site and the achievements of Canadians associated with the armed forces. 



The Milner family represents an outstanding example of Alberta’s service to Canada’s military. Seven family members, including fathers, brothers and wives, served from World War I to Stanley Milner’s work with the South Alberta Light Horse Regiment. 



Stanley Milner exemplified his family’s commitment to the military, serving in the 2nd Battalion, Saskatoon Light Infantry and the Canadian Officer Training Program. He also served as Honourary Colonel of the South Alberta Light Horse Regiment and founded the South Alberta Light Horse Regiment Foundation, a group which preserves regimental history and provides support for retired soldiers and military families. Mr. Milner was also a successful businessman, city alderman and philanthropist.



Hundreds of guests turned out to recognize the incredible military service of the Milner family including special recognitions for former Honorary Colonel of The South Alberta Light Horse Regiment Stanley A. Milner and brother Tom Milner. Thank you to everyone who came out and made this such a memorable event.



Dignitaries who came to celebrate the occasion included: The Honourable Amarjeet Sohi Minister Of Natural Resources and Member of Parliament for Edmonton - Millwoods, His Worship Mayor Don Iveson, MLA for Edmonton-Castle Downs Nicole Goehring, John McBain, President and CEO of Canada Lands Company and Deputy Commander of 41 Canadian Brigade Group, and Lieutenant-Colonel Mike Vernon



Following the remarks, Mr. Milner and his son, Kevin Milner, unveiled the new street sign and a tribute plaque that will soon to be installed at the site of the future Milner Crescent, with the commemorative plaque being located at the intersection of Milner Crescent and Sir Arthur Currie Way.
