Remembrance Day Celebrations in the Riding

Nathaniel attends several ceremonies in the riding this year.

Had the honour of speaking at DA Morrison Middle School’s very thoughtful and inclusive remembrance ceremony. A special thanks to Veterans Affairs Minister Seamus O’Regan for ensuring every school in our riding received a wreath this year. Original Facebook post.

Attended a beautiful ceremony this morning at Kew Gardens. After recently visiting the Canadian War Museum in Ottawa, I came to realize the astounding number of Canadians who served in World War I and II, and gave their lives, bodies, and minds.

In World War I, 61,000 Canadians died, and another 172,00 were injured. Adjusted for today’s population, that equates to over 1 million Canadians.

Over 1.1 million Canadians served in World War II. Adjusted for today’s population, that would mean 3.5 million Canadians. Original Facebook post.
