Please take some time today to remember those lost, those injured, those serving and those retired from the Canadian Armed Fcrces and the RCMP.  For those folks and their families  today is a very special day .  While the veterans are always out front , as they should be, often times the devotion of their families is not remembered.

Canadians are a special group. We live in the best country in the world. That did not happen by accident.
