Warmest wishes for the Holidays
Ottawa, ON - December 18, 2015
With the holidays upon us, I want to take the opportunity to wish peace, joy, and good health to all of our Veterans, serving members and their families.
Canadians are well-known for their kindness and hospitality so I’d like to encourage everyone, as we come together with loved ones this Holiday Season and partake in treasured holiday traditions, to have a special thought for those who are serving our country over the holidays, and for their families. I’d like to thank them for their service and I wish them all a safe return home.
I am always touched by the spirit and strength and by the generosity of our serving members over the Holiday Season, and will share with you on social media some great examples of that over the coming days.
Looking back on 2015, I think of the positive steps forward we’ve taken toward improving the support for Veterans and their families, and I think of the work that remains to be done to ensure they get the care and support that is needed. With the upcoming New Year, we have the opportunity to continue the momentum and with the right vision, we have the opportunity to make meaningful change for Veterans and their families.
On behalf of my team at the Office of the Veterans Ombudsman, I wish you and your loved ones the very best this Holiday Season and continued health and happiness in 2016.
