Special thanks to Corporal David Nespolo (teacher at St. Thomas Aquinas) and Elissa Iagallo for organizing today’s event.
 
Remembrance Day Address
It is very important that we continue to honour, acknowledge and remember the generations of Canadian Service members and their families who committed to serving Canada.  This wonderful and very emotional tribute here this afternoon demonstrates the respect and appreciation we feel towards all those who made sacrifices for Canada and each of us.
 
Through ceremonial efforts, we educate and engage the next generation and help raise awareness for our Canadian veterans and their families.  Our goal is to honour every soldier who has fought for our Canadian freedoms and to ensure that their acts of bravery are recognized and never forgotten.
 
We acknowledge Remembrance Day to not forget that Canada wasn’t always this way.  Millions of people experienced immeasurable loss including life, to make our country what it is today.  Lest we never forget.
A special thank you to our own Cadet Levi and Cadet Lester accompanied by Sgt. Di Tommaso, Pte. Elliotson and our very own Corporal Nespolo from the Governor General’s Horse Guards representing the Canadian Armed Forces today.
