Premier Christy Clark issued the following statement on Remembrance Day
“Each year on the 11th day of the 11th month, we pay silent tribute to the men and women who served, in conflicts past and current, and made the ultimate sacrifice for our country.
“From every corner of this continent of a nation, and from every walk of life, they risked everything so that their friends, neighbours and descendants will never have to face the horrors of war. So that our children will grow up safe and free.
“We honour their memory by preserving what they fought for: peace, freedom and a Canada where differences are settled not with violence, but with discussion and democracy.
“Thank you to all those who have answered their country’s call, who continue to represent us at our best and to the families that support them.”
