Canadians often take freedom for granted.
We have the right to exist and move about our country without threat, we are able to freely express ourselves, and we enjoy so many other freedoms that are protected under the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms.
This certainty has been threatened before; those who serve or have served in our armed forces for the good of Canada and their fellow Canadians deserve our respect.
Wear a poppy and reflect on November 11th every year and remember how lucky you are!
Rick Anthony (retired VCPU member) talks to us about some of VicPD's men who gave their lives in the protection of Canada and our freedoms. He also talks about his own Peacekeeping mission to Kosovo while serving as a police officer.
