Lest We Forget

MLA David Shepherd and a man in military uniform stand in reverence as a Girl Guide places a poppy on the grave of a fallen soldier.

This week I had the privilege of joining both the No Stone Left Alone Memorial Foundation and the City of Edmonton to participate in their Remembrance Day ceremonies.

No Stone Left Alone works with school groups and our armed forces to ensure every veteran's grave is marked with a poppy to honour their service. On Monday, I was honoured and moved to take part and help in these efforts at the Edmonton Municipal Cemetery.

I was joined at today's City Hall ceremonies by my colle...agues Rod Loyola, MLA for Edmonton Ellerslie and Nicole Goehring MLA for Edmonton Castle Downs and our official military liaison as well as hundreds of Edmontonians. It was wonderful to see so many come out to remember the debt we owe those who fought for our freedoms.

Lest we forget.
