Statement by Official Opposition on Veterans Week

Official Opposition Veterans Affairs critic Peter Stoffer (Sackville – Eastern Shore) made the following statement on the occasion of Veterans Week:

“From November 5 to 11 we commemorate Veterans Week to pay tribute to veterans and acknowledge their important contribution.

The New Democratic Party would like to thank members of the Canadian military, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, veterans and their families for the enormous sacrifices they have made throughout Canada’s history. Let us take this opportunity to remember their dedication and achievements on behalf of our country.   

On behalf of the NDP and our leader Tom Mulcair we wish all the best to the men and women who serve our country, who have served and who will serve in the future as well as their families. We recognize the many sacrifices they make for us.”
