Morris, MB – On Sunday, Candice Bergen, Conservative House Leader and MP for Portage-Lisgar participated in the Royal Canadian Legion, Annual Decoration Day Service in Morris.
“It was an honour to lay a wreath and recognize our men and women in uniform who have sacrificed so that we are afforded the freedoms we experience today,” said Bergen. “As Canadians we should take every opportunity, such as Decoration Day, to show our Armed Forces Members that their sacrifices are not in vain. It is because of them that Canada is the best country in the world in which to live.”
The annual ceremony honours veterans of Canada’s military by commemorating our war dead with the laying of flowers, on the weekend closest to June 2.
