fortunate to live in a country where democracy, respect for human rights and
the rule of law are fundamental principles. We are able to enjoy this
incredible privilege because of the valour of those Canadians who, throughout
our history, answered the call to serve our country, defending the values that
we hold dear. November 11 is a day on
which the poppy is proudly worn over our hearts...to remember and to pay
tribute to our fellow citizens, who lost their lives.
