A significant Remembrance Day

This year’s Remembrance Day is significant in many ways.

  • World War I started 100 years ago.
  • Parliament Hill was attacked last month by a lone gunman after he shot and killed Cpl. Nathan Cirillo, a member of the military on ceremonial guard duty at the War Memorial. (Thank you for stopping him, Mister Vickers!)
  • Earlier that same week, Warrant Officer Patrice Vincent was killed in St-Jean-Sur-Richelieu by a deliberate hit-and-run. (story here)
  • In January, the Minister of Veteran’s Affairs, Julian Fantino, has demonstrated the importance of always standing up against bullies like himself. (context here)

To all the veterans, we salute you.
