VICTORIA (November 11, 2020) – Official Opposition Leader Andrew Wilkinson released the following statement today for Remembrance Day:
“This Wednesday, we remember the sacrifices of brave men and women in service of our country to secure and guarantee the freedoms we cherish today as Canadians.
“This year marks the 75th anniversary of the end of the Second World War, a bloody conflict that spanned every corner of the globe where 1.1 million Canadians served and 42,000 lost their lives. It is vital that we ensure that the horrors of war, and those sacrifices, are never forgotten.
“Every day, and on Remembrance Day especially, it is important for us all to reflect on what it means to be Canadian and how we can play a role in safeguarding the peace and values that were fought for many years ago.
“On behalf of the entire BC Liberal Caucus we send our thanks to those who are serving today, those who fought before, and to their loved ones who remember them, their victories, and their sacrifices.
“Thank you. We will always remember.”
