This is the war Memorial, it doesn’t memorialize wars but those who fought in them for the freedom of others. Read more about Canada’s War Memorial here.
Today is a day that is fraught with mixed emotions. It’s tempting to feel frustration, sadness, and anger but that’s not what today is about. It’s not about war, or what happened last month.
Today is about remembrance and honouring those that have fought or died for others. Canada has traditionally played the role of peacekeeper; it’s a role I’ve always been proud of. We’re not warmongers we don’t pick fights we help those who need help.
I hope you take a few minutes, today, to remember those who have done their best to help others and had to pay the ultimate costs.
To all those who serve, thank you,
