Lest we forget.

Today, we honour those who have served our nation and selflessly defended our democracy. We owe it those who have served to never forget.

Remembrance day is a time for reflection. We are eternally grateful to our veterans and their families who have endured pain and loss in the name of our country.

We cannot forget the cost of war. We must strive to be better. Veterans have put themselves in harm’s way to protect us, and we owe them our respect, support, and commitment to strive for peace.

And when those veterans return home, we owe it to them to provide the care and support they need.

We must do our part and commit ourselves to strive for a more respectful, fair, democratic and peaceful world.
