OTTAWA –The Conservative Party’s interim leader, Rona Ambrose, released the following statement today marking Remembrance Day: “I join all Canadians today in honouring and remembering the sacrifices and courage our brave men and women in uniform have made in service to our country as they protected and continue to protect the freedoms, rights, and democracy we are fortunate to enjoy today. “From the World Wars to Korea to Afghanistan and countless other military operations, Canadians from coast to coast to coast selflessly answered the call to defend our country, aid our allies and stand up to evils around the world. “Canada is the best country in the world because of the dedication of our men and women in uniform and the protections they provided to make it possible for us to live in a peaceful, respectful and democratic country. “As we pay tribute to our fallen who made the ultimate sacrifice and celebrate those who continue to serve, let us also remember while we can never repay the debt to our members of the Canadian Armed Forces and others who paid for our protections with their lives, we can honour their bravery, their sacrifice and their commitment to our country. “Lest we forget.”
