Yesterday at the Canadian Tulip Festival, they celebrated all our honored veterans with Veteran’s Day and what a great ceremony it was. These brave men and women truly deserve to be honored and celebrated and with that in mind.
The First Annual Canadian Walk for Veterans will be held in eight cities across Canada on Sunday, June 3, 2018. It is an initiative created by Canada’s veterans, for Canada’s veterans.
The Canadian Walk for Veterans is a collective declaration by Canadians across this country who pay tribute to the men and women who have served in Canada’s military and sacrificed to provide us all with a safe and secure homeland. It is an opportunity to get to know veterans in a fun, informal way and walk shoulder to shoulder with those who stand on guard for thee.
The first Walk for Veterans was held in October 2017 in Central Park, Burnaby, BC with over 200 participants. This year, the walk has expanded nationally to a total of eight cities across the country: Victoria, Vancouver, Edmonton, Ottawa, Kingston, Halifax, Fredericton and St. John’s.
“We’re uniting to create one voice and most importantly build a legacy of justice, fairness, and equity for Canada’s military veterans” said Marc Burchell, President of Equitas Society, which is organizing the national event. “We hope everyone who knows a member of our Canadian Armed Forces will come out Sunday, June 3rd and help support the voice that veterans so deserve.”
