D Day Vigil 2013
June 6th, 2013
at 1300 (1:00 p.m.)
Parliament Hill, Ottawa
“It’s an abject betrayal by the government of Canada and that’s all there is to it.” Major Mark Campbell, Afghanistan, double amputee amongst other serious injuries.
This is what happens when elected representatives fail to fulfill the Sacred Obligation they bear for those they send to war.
On June 6th, between 13-1345, veterans and politicians will gather on the steps of Parliament Hill where the disparities of respect between the valiant who fought at Juno Beach and courageous Canadians who fought in the Panjawaii Valley and the obligation that WE, we as Canadians, have to those who stand on guard for thee.
Join with many voices, one message - restore the Sacred Obligation, veterans will prevail and the spirit of this nation, a spirit forged in blood, courage, great sacrifice at Juno Beach, will be accorded to those who have sacrificed so much in Canada's name, in Kabul, Khandahar and the blood stained Panjawaii Valley.
Canadian blood. Canadian Sacrifice Lest we Forget.
The CVA will be supporting Col Ret Pat Stogran's Singing for Change event at Darcy McGee's later that evening. Funds raised will be dedicated to Wounded Warriors.
