11 November, 2015 – OTTAWA. The Ukrainian Canadian Congress (UCC) issued the following statement on Remembrance Day in Canada:
On this solemn day, Canadians pause to pay tribute to the men and women of our Armed forces who sacrificed their lives protecting our country and our freedom. We express to all those who have defended and continue to defend our country our eternal gratitude for their service. We owe them a debt that can never be repaid. They are the finest sons and daughters of Canada and their valour and sacrifice shall never be forgotten.
As Ukrainian Canadians, we pause as well to remember the men and women of Ukraine who have been forced to take up arms to defend their country against Russia’s invasion. We express to them our solidarity and ensure our support as they bravely battle to protect their rights and their freedom.
Lest We Forget
