TMX Group Honours Remembrance Day
Representatives from Veterans Affairs Canada and National Defence, the Canadian Forces and Tom Kloet, CEO, TMX Group opened the market to mark Remembrance Day. Senator Nicole Eaton was joined by Second World Veteran Jan de Vries. Each year, Canada marks Veterans' Week, November 5-11 to honour and remember all the men and women who served Canada in times of war, military conflict and peace. This year, Remembrance Day also marks the 65th anniversary of D-Day and the Battle of Normandy; the 65th anniversary of Italian Campaign and the 65th anniversary of the Liberation of Belgium. The brave Canadians who served in these Second World War campaigns answered their nation’s call during its time of greatest need. They left their homes and families to defend the values we hold dear: freedom, democracy and the rule of law. Lest we forget.
