November 11th is Remembrance Day. The day we, as Canadians, pause to remember and commemorate the deaths of hundreds of Canadians who fought and died for our freedom. Young men and women, both in service of the military and civilian, who sacrificed their lives to ensure that we live better ones.
As both proud young Canadians and Cadets, it is our duty to participate in the Remembrance Day parade every year. November 11th is one of the most important days of the year for Cadets across
to show their pride in their Corps and Country, and to show they remember, they will always remember. Canada
As we do each year, Fraser will participate in the Remembrance Day ceremony in
, at the Armories and City Hall. Lest we forget. New Westminster
~ PO1 A. Gagnon, RCSCC FRASER
I urge everyone to take the time to wear a poppy, to attend one of the many local ceremonies or just stop for a few minutes of silence on November 11th and remember. They gave their lives for you, and for that we will be ever thankful and never forget.
~ Lt(N) M. St. Hilaire, RCSCC FRASER
The following is from the Veterans Affairs Canada Website
On this one day every year, we pay special homage to those who died in service to their country. We remember these brave men and women for their courage and their devotion to ideals. We wear poppies, attend ceremonies, and visit memorials. For one brief moment of our life, we remember why we must work for peace every day of the year.

On October 3, 2010 a rarely held Freedom of the City celebration took place at the
city hall. New Westminster
It is a very big honour for any military naval unit, and it was a privilege for the Sea Cadets of FRASER, whom were invited to parade alongside the crew of HMCS DISCOVERY and be inspected by the New Westminster Mayor, Wayne Wright.
The ceremony is part of a series of events that are commemorating the Canadian Navy’s centennial year . It will replicate a 400-year-old tradition and demonstrate the good relations between the City of
and HMCS Discovery. New Westminster
