On Remembrance Day, we pay tribute to those Canadians who have served and currently serve in our armed forces. We thank you for your courage and sacrifice.
We must remember that it is not only individual soldiers, but entire families and communities who suffer loss in order to protect our Canadian way of life and offer aid to those in need around the world.
The debt we owe to soldiers, who are often wounded both physically and psychologically, must be repaid during their service and as soon as they return home. We must do everything we can to ensure our soldiers and their families are able to lead happy and fulfilling lives following their service.
Out of respect for all those who have had the courage to serve our country, we must remember each day to strive toward a more peaceful, democratic and respectful world.
Lest we forget.
Green Party of Ontario
