Vancouver - Mayor Gregor Robertson will participate in Remembrance Day ceremonies at Vancouver's Victory Square.

Statement from the Mayor:

“Today we remember and reflect upon the profound sacrifices made by Canada’s veterans, ranging from the First World War one hundred years ago to the tragic loss of Canadian soldiers just last month.

“The values and freedoms that define Vancouver as a city are the inheritance of their remarkable service, and we thank the women and men who serve in Canada’s Armed Forces today for their continued courage.

“While the sacrifices of so many who have come before us may seem long ago in memory, their contribution to Canada’s future lives on in our enduring commitment to peace, democracy, freedom and justice. Lest we forget.” - Mayor Gregor Robertson
