Premier John Horgan has released the following statement in honour of Remembrance Day:
“At the eleventh hour, on the eleventh day, of the eleventh month, British Columbians will gather at cenotaphs throughout B.C to honour veterans, armed forces members and merchant marines who have served our country.
“On Remembrance Day, we reflect on the horrors of war, loved ones lost and the sacrifice of those who returned to us with injuries, both visible and invisible.
“For generations, Canadians have bravely risked their lives to protect ours. We must never forget their sacrifice. We must stand united against hate, violence and intolerance. And we must work together to build a more peaceful world.
“Lest we forget.”
