Today, Wildrose Leader Brian Jean released the following statement to mark Remembrance Day.
“On this solemn day, Canadians from coast to coast to coast, gather together to pay tribute to the brave men and women that have served, and who continue to serve our great nation.
“In times when the world called on Canada, Canadians have always punched above their weight. From the Battle of Vimy Ridge, to the storming of the beaches in Juno, to Korea and the desert sands in Afghanistan, Canada has always proudly defended our values, protected the world from evil and stood tall with our allies.
“Even today, our men and women in uniform continue to risk it all, fighting to protect our freedoms and to help bring peace to the world.
“Today, we honour them; the ones of uniforms past, to the ones of uniforms present. We thank them all for their service, dedication and bravery. For laying it all on the line in service and duty to their country.
“As Albertans and Canadians, let us never forget their sacrifice.
“Lest we forget.”
