The Hon. Andrew Scheer, Leader of Canada’s Conservatives and of the Official Opposition, today released the following statement on Remembrance Day:

To every Veteran across Canada, on this Remembrance Day, I want to say thank you.

Thank you for your service, your sacrifice, and for everything you have given in the service of our country.

Your bravery is why Canadians from coast to coast enjoy the freedoms that we do today. Your courage is why so many from around the world continue to seek out Canada to realize its promise of peace and freedom.

No matter where you have served – in World War II or the Korean War, in Afghanistan, or in conflict zones around the world – you deserve our unconditional and heartfelt gratitude. Not just on Remembrance Day – but every day.

On behalf of the Conservative Party of Canada, we will never forget those we have lost. We will always honour their memory, and we will always cherish the heroes who put their lives on the line for us.
