STATEMENT ON VETERANS' WEEK IN THE SENATE

Veterans' Week


Honourable senators, I’m honoured to rise today to mark the start of Veterans’ Week 2020. This year we commemorate the seventy-fifth anniversaries of the liberation of The Netherlands, Victory in Europe Day and Victory over Japan Day, and the end of the Second World War.

We also commemorate the start of the seventieth anniversary of the Korean War years — June 25, 2020, to July 27, 2023 — and honour the Canadians who served in the Korean War and in peacekeeping duties post-armistice, many of whom were also World War II veterans.
