Today marks the 91st anniversary of the end of the first World War. It is a day here in Canada where we remember the sacrifices made by our armed forces. We remember why we had to fight the wars we did. In terms of Canadian identity the role our nation played in both the first and second world war shaped our independence and built a foundation for the country to compete and have influence on the global stage. We fought for the freedom of people overseas, and continue to do so, in hopes that the fight would never reach our shores.
Lest we forget our heroes and their sacrifice.
