2015 Remembrance Day ceremony

Over 200 people made a point to stop by the St. Marys cenotaph on Wednesday morning to see the town’s Service of Remembrance and pay their respects for the veterans who have offered up their lives for Canada in the name of peace. In a statement, Mayor Al Strathdee said, “We must remember their sacrifice for their country and their belief in the principles they risked their lives for. Their legacy must go on. We need to stand up for those who can’t defend themselves. We must be vigilant in safeguarding the legal and democratic principles they fought for and hold our leaders accountable to that same standard. For those who served their country we honour you, but can never repay you for your sacrifice. But I promise you, as Canadians, we will never forget.”
