Lest We Forget

To truly honour those who died for our freedom, we must ensure our country is protected.

On Remembrance Day, as Canadians honoured the sacrifice of those who fought and died for our freedom, we rightfully looked to the past.

After all, without the sacrifices of those who put their lives on the line for future generations, our country would not be free, and wouldn’t even exist.

Their sacrifice in the past made our today possible.

With that in mind however, it is also important to recognize that truly honouring the sacrifices made in the past requires ensuring that our country remains free.

And that requires Canada having a strong military, something we currently lack.

All aspects of our armed forces are depleted and underfunded, from our ground forces, air force, and navy. We have no real control over our northern territory – which is being encroached upon by more powerful nations.

Our men and women in uniform are forced to use substandard equipment, and our procurement process is a total failure, adding up to endless delays, low-quality implements, and huge price overruns.

Right now, Canada lacks the ability to truly defend ourselves, and are forced to rely on the United States and the United Nations for the protection of our own territory if things were to really go bad.

That is an insult to the legacy of those who fought and died for Canada. They didn’t’ sacrifice just for Canada to basically abandon our military and leave our country defenseless. If we want ‘Lest We Forget’ to truly have meaning, then we must strengthen our armed forces and ensure that the country we love is safe and secure.

Yes Spencer, we MUST always remember the lines, in the poem, Flanders Fields, ” Take up our quarrel with the foe, to you with failing hands we throw the torch, be yours to hold on high, lest ye break faith with us who die.

I believe that we are incrementally losing the freedoms that our fathers and grandfathers fought for.
That said, I agree about the state of our military. It was treated so when I served in the late 60s and early 70s. The military was slightly rejuvenated during the Harper years. However our post-national current leadership is once again starving it and turning it into an emasculated shell.

Trudeau the hypocrite is overseas pretending to pay his respects to Canadians who died for our freedoms, yet has declared that our own veterans are asking for more than he will give and at the same time voting for M-103 in an attempt to ban free speech. This is an individual that is so mentally, emotionally and intellectually challenged we absolutely MUST replace him and his Party. Canada desperately needs a strong leader, even if they are as abrasive as Trump. Someone to come in, throw political correctness in the garbage and get on with salvaging Canada. If they “offend”… Read more »

When our Joke of a PM Trudope allows ISIS Fighters to Return to Canada after they have killed, dismembered, burned Canadian Soldiers and Soldiers of our Allied Countries, this Idiot has NO business pretending to Honour our past Soldiers and Veterans. Trudope should NEVER be allowed to attend Rememberance Day Events! His presence is Dishonourable to our Soldiers and Veterans who have fought for our Freedom! Trudope is a Despicable TRAITOR and should be REMOVED ASAP!
