The Importance of Remembrance Day

If ye break faith with us who die,
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields

Lt. Col. John McCrae from the poem In Flanders Fields

Every year on November 11, we remember and honour the brave men and women who fell while protecting our country by wearing our poppies with pride, supporting veterans’ organizations and participating in local Remembrance Day events.

Our team members also created a mural to mark the occasion and our media screen at TELUS Garden in Vancouver shares the “Lest we forget” reminder each night. Take a look:
