On Remembrance Day, we stop what we are doing to honour those who have risked their lives, and those who continue to do so, to keep us safe and protect our freedom.
We hear ‘lest we forget’ so often this time of year, but it is a phrase we should remember every day; we can never forget the immense cost of our way of life, our democracy and our peace at home.
As we reflect in silence this year, also remember those who continue to fight for our freedom – the freedom to think, freedom to speak, freedom to love and freedom to choose.
On behalf of all Manitobans, I offer a profound thank you to all those who have served and to all those who continue to serve this nation with courage, honour and dignity.
We express our deepest respect and gratitude to you and your families, and we promise never to forget.
