Mayor Tyler Gandam has issued the following statement in acknowledgment of Veterans' Week:
"Veterans' Week is our opportunity to honour those who served their country, in military conflict or peacekeeping missions. This week includes Indigenous Veterans Day, as well as Remembrance Day.
We recognize the men and women who selflessly put their lives on the line to ensure Canadians live free from war at home. We pay respect to those who have served and those who paid the ultimate sacrifice. We also honour the families of our veterans who have lost sons, daughters, fathers, and mothers — and those who did return, forever changed by their experience.
We have so much to be thankful for in Canada — a big part of that is because of our veterans."
