"Year after year we gather and shout commands in the Square,
Wait for the Governor-General, say a few words of prayer,
Lay our wreaths in order, mothers and big shots first,
In memory of those who have made it to the other side of the worst."
- George Johnston, Canadian poet, Remembrance, 1966
Thank you to our veterans, young and old, present and deceased, who have fought and continue to fight for our safety, our freedom and our values.
Thank you to those who fight abroad in Afghanistan, who struggle to bring piece to a war-torn land. You are not forgotten.
That's what we do. We stand up for those who can't stand up for themselves
Of fathers, their sons, and war
