Premier’s Remembrance Day Message

Wednesday, November 11, 2015 @ 8:02 AM

Victoria, B.C.  Premier Christy Clark has issued  the following statement to mark Remembrance Day.

“Each year on the 11th day of the 11th month, we pay silent tribute to the men and women who served, in conflicts past and current, and made the ultimate sacrifice for our country.

“From every corner of this continent of a nation, and from every walk of life, they risked everything so that their friends, neighbours and descendants will never have to face the horrors of war. So that our children will grow up safe and free.

“We honour their memory by preserving what they fought for: peace, freedom and a Canada where differences are settled not with violence, but with discussion and democracy.

“Thank you to all those who have answered their country’s call, who continue to represent us at our best and to the families that support them.”


Thank goodness for our politicians reminding us about these special days…. we look up to our leaders in times like these…

Out of respect for our veterans I was going to reply to this post, but lets just leave it at that. I had an uncle in the Korean war and a grandfather in WW2 who believed in freedom for their fellow man. They both endured the atrocities of war and it affected them deeply. TO the very end both of them refused to talk about the horrors they witnessed.

Its days like this when it is time to put politics aside and just appreciate what we have and remember those who sacrificed themselves for their country.
