As we approach Remembrance Day on 11 November, we would ask all Canadians to pause and think about the sacrifices of our Veterans. We ask you to do this because we know Canadians care. It is on this day that we think about sacrifice, what it meant in the past, what it means to us now and what it will mean to us in the future.

We ask you to think about the 117,000 Canadians that have lost their lives protecting our values, our heritage, and our nation. Today the men and women of the Canadian Forces continue to make the ultimate sacrifice so that people in other nations may enjoy the same type of freedoms. On November 11 the Legion will lead all Canadians in remembering those who have given their lives for Canada. We ask you most especially to remember those who recently lost their lives in Afghanistan and were brought home to rest in peace. They join the many courageous Canadians who paid the ultimate sacrifice and lay in foreign shores. Their sacrifice reminds us that freedom is not free but paid for in the blood of our young men and women.

We ask you for two minutes silence on this day. Two minutes of your time to ensure that the sacrifices made are not forgotten. It is our solemn duty as citizens to remember those who have given so much. We honour their valour and courage and offer our gratitude. We will remember them.

Patricia Varga
Dominion President
