The St. James Canucks would like to extend their deepest gratitude to the men and women of the Canadian Armed Forces who fight to protect us and preserve our freedom.
Since Confederation, over 118,000 Canadians have given up their lives so we can live peacefully and do the things we love to do. Soldiers continue to fight and keep peace across the world to ensure we can continue living this way.
We play hockey because we love the game, but we also play because we live in a country where organized hockey is not only celebrated, but part of the very fabric of what makes Canada a great country. We may fight on the ice with our opponents sometimes, but the real fight is with those who serve to ensure our freedom and we will never forget that.
From the bottom of our hearts, thank you to the men and women of the Canadian Armed Forces and their families. Your sacrifices are forever appreciated and will never be forgotten.
Lest we forget.
