For the Week of Oct 31, 2022
Working together; succeeding together.
We acknowledge the harm of colonialism and the residential school system and commit to working together toward reconciliation and forging a better path forward.
Lest We Forget
A few years ago at a school Remembrance Day service, I was sharing some thoughts. One of the thoughts that I shared was around the idea of "Lest We Forget". I shared that, although it is positive that our youth are so far removed from war that they struggle to even comprehend its horrors, it is also negative as they also struggle to connect with the need for remembering the sacrifice of our veterans. This is why Remembrance Day services and remembrance projects being undertaken by communities are so important. Although our world does find itself in a series of ongoing conflicts, our youth, thankfully, are largely shielded. This is why we must find ways to ensure that the sacrifice of our veterans is never forgotten and that our gratitude never wavers.
To that end, I want to extend my appreciation for the town of Porcupine Plain as well as several other small (and larger) communities across Saskatchewan that have undertaken a variety of remembrance projects on top of community Remembrance Day services. We were driving through Niapwin the other day when we noticed that have renamed one of their streets "Veterans Way". It is simple, seemingly small, gestures like these that will help to embed the act of remembrance in our daily lives and our very subconscious. This, along with the more deliberate events, will ensure that our youth do not forget and that our collective gratitude never wanes. Thank you to the small communities and those who work tirelessly on remembrance projects, yours is an act of vital importance; Lest we forget.

This year, the Legion is proud to present “Poppy Stories”, a brand-new initiative that allows people to scan a lapel Poppy with a smartphone and be introduced to a fallen soldier with a story to remember.
Not only does each Veteran's story recognize their sacrifice, but it also honours their life. The short stories expand upon where and how soldiers grew up in Canada, their family history, pre-war careers, and even some of their passions. Through the experience, we hope to give many Canadians a special Veteran’s name to remember this year.
