“On this solemn day, may we all pause to remember all those who have made the ultimate sacrifice in defence of our country. There are no words that can accurately describe the thanks these courageous souls are owed.
With the threat of evil looming, Canadians have always heeded the call and done what is right. Many of those fallen were just young men and women, but did not hesitate to help our friends and fight to protect the values we hold so dear.
They were, and continue to be Canada’s best, and everyday they continue to inspire us, and make us proud.
“They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We will remember them.”
Lest We Forget.”
