A Remembrance Day Statement from Ontario NDP Official Opposition Leader Andrea Horwath
Posted November 11th, 2021 on Niagara At Large
Official Opposition Leader Andrea Horwath released the following statement to mark Remembrance Day:
“Today we remember and honour the many Canadians who have courageously served our country, in times of conflict and in times of peace, so that we may live in freedom and safety.
We express gratitude for the brave sacrifices of those who served and continue to serve, who have willingly faced great hardship and selflessly put the safety of others before their own.
I join all Ontarians in mourning those who have made ultimate sacrifice to safeguard peace and our shared values, and in honouring their loved ones who have endured so much. We will never take for granted their immeasurable contributions.
On Remembrance Day, we also recognize our duty as a province to care for those who have made extraordinary sacrifices for our country.
That means ensuring treatment and support for veterans with mental health issues, providing dignified seniors care as veterans age, and ending the federal Disability Award claw back from injured veterans who receive social assistance.
I encourage all Ontarians to reflect on the peace and security our families enjoy as a result of the vigilance and sacrifice of our valiant Armed Forces.
Lest we forget the debt we owe to those who have bravely served, and those who continue to serve, so that we can live in a free, peaceful and prosperous Canada.”

Every Remembrance Day I play “Flowers of the Forest” on my pipes as a tribute to my dad and a cousin I lost in WW2 who is buried at Beny Sur Mer in France. They had the guts to do things I never would have been able to do.
