In light of Remembrance Day, I have been thinking about all those men and women who have accepted to serve      missions for Canada; those who have   fallen in combat and whose memory we honour and those who have returned scarred and carrying within themselves the horror of war – these people too should never be forgotten.

In light of Remembrance Day, I have been thinking about all those men and women who have accepted to serve      missions for Canada; those who have   fallen in combat and whose memory we honour and those who have returned scarred and carrying within themselves the horror of war – these people too should never be forgotten. At this      year’s Remembrance Day ceremony in Chelsea, I counted our collective        blessings.
Our thoughts and our prayers are with the family and friends of Corporal Nathan Cirillo and Warrant Officer Patrice Vincent. The cowardly acts committed last month were intended to intimidate us and to incite Canadians to forget their true nature. We are citizens of a democracy of which we are proud, of a welcoming and peaceful nation, of a country that never hesitates to open its arms and its heart. Ours is a country of equity, of justice and the primacy of the law. We must hold fast to these values and principles to honour all those who have sacrificed their life or their health.
