VICTORIA (November 11, 2019) – Official Opposition Leader Andrew Wilkinson released the following statement today for Remembrance Day:
“Today, we remember the sacrifice of the countless men and women who have served our country and ensured that we are able to enjoy the freedoms we do every day as Canadians.
“Last year we marked the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War and next year we will mark the 75th anniversary of the end of the Second World War. As these horrible conflicts fall further from living memory we must make every effort to ensure that the horrors of war 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 must ensure those values that were fought for so many years ago, continue to be a part of our lives today.
“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.
“We thank you and we remember you.”
