Statement on Remembrance Day

SAINT JOHN – The following is a statement for Remembrance Day from NDP Leader Dominic Cardy:

“On this day we reflect and remember the sacrifices our men and women in uniform have made so that we can enjoy this peaceable country, governed by laws decided by all of us.

Their sacrifice, from Vimy to Kandahar, to the precincts of our own Parliament, allows us to continue to argue, to debate, to differ, to resolve, to reconcile, and to build this country.

I ask you to join me in acknowledgement of lives lost and shattered, and for those who serve today, risking everything for all of us.

To all the brave men and women, past and present, we give thanks. Lest we forget.”
