PM delivers remarks during the Chief of the Defence Staff Change of Command ceremony

Thank you very much.

Your Excellency Governor General Johnston, Minister Kenney, Minister Fantino, Generals Lawson and Vance, and members of the Canadian Armed Forces, honoured veterans, distinguished guests, ladies and gentlemen.

Some of you here will recall what I said in autumn of last year.

I said then that Canada’s Armed Forces have been central to the story of our country for more than 200 years.

Central to our national identity, central to our success as a country, central at times to our very survival.
