HONESTY AND DUTY • INTÉGRITÉ ET DEVOIR;
Blue, yellow and red are the colours of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, with which Mr. Goulet served for 23 years. The stripes allude to the twelve strings of a guitar, and thus to his love of music, especially his enjoyment of this instrument. The compass rose refers to his love of travel, as does the triangular shape, which can allude to the bow of a ship. The fleur-de-lis, a traditional form of the north point of the compass, makes reference to Mr. Goulet’s French-Canadian heritage and his birthplace, Montreal.
The partridge is a bird which Mr. Goulet hunts, and its outstretched wings allude to his longtime hobby of flying model airplanes and helicopters. The blue ribbon refers to the insignia of office of the Edmonton Epicurean Society, with which Mr. Goulet has been active for many years. The maple leaf is an indication of his Canadian identity.
