FROM: Captain (Ret'd) Michael Cole, CD1
The question I would pose tomorrow to the Minister of Veterans Affairs is a simple one. Could we designate 01 Aug as Veterans day instead of a civic holiday.
This would allow the Canadian public to honour all veterans and appreciate those post Korean War veterans who have served under the United Nations as peacekeepers, and in other conflicts such as those in Africa and Afghanistan This would show them that
Canadian's appreciate their contribution to
Canada and it's values.
