Here is how you can honour the fallen, our veterans, and those in active service:
WHEREAS during Remembrance Week, we honour and pay our respects to all Canadian veterans who have served and continue to serve to uphold the peace and freedoms we enjoy today. We also pause on the11th hour of the 11th day of the11th month, to remember those who paid the ultimate price to protect our freedoms.
In 2023, we mark the 70th anniversary of the Korean War Armistice. Nearly 30,000 Canadians served on land, sea and in the air during the conflict, which began in 1950. The Korean Armistice Agreement, signed in July 1953, brought an end to the fighting but it did not bring an end to the conflict. Sadly, 516 Canadians were killed during the Korean War and approximately 38 of them had connections to Toronto.
We also remember Canadian peacekeepers who, as members of the Canadian Forces, have taken part in many operations to keep the peace in countries around the world over the past 75 years, sometimes at the steep cost of their lives.
The City of Toronto acknowledges the bravery, courage and sacrifices of all Canadian veterans who fought for the peace and freedom we enjoy today, in times of war, in peacekeeping operations, and in times of need here at home and abroad. In the face of many global challenges, we continue to honour both those who have served, and those who continue to serve, along with their families.
During Remembrance Week, I encourage Toronto residents to support the Royal Canadian Legion by purchasing and wearing a poppy in memory of the more than 100,000 Canadians who gave their lives.
NOW THEREFORE, I, Mayor Olivia Chow, on behalf of Toronto City Council, do hereby proclaim November 5 – 11, 2023 as “Remembrance Week” in the City of Toronto.
