MPP Yurek’s Statement on Legion Week

Statement:

“I’d like to take the opportunity as the MPP for Elgin-Middlesex-London to recognize Legion Week which is taking place from September 21 to 27.  Through their wide-reaching efforts, the Royal Canadian Legion ensures we never forget the sacrifice made by our armed forces.  This institution upholds the noble values that took our soldiers to the front lines in the 20th century and honours those continuing to fight for those same values today.

We can also not overlook the impact our local Legions have in our communities.  Along with their affiliated organization the Ladies Auxiliary, the Royal Canadian Legion raises millions of dollars every year to support veterans, seniors, and youth.  As MPP, I have been fortunate enough to take part in Legion events and their commitment to our communities is truly exceptional.

So take a moment this week to reflect on the contributions the Royal Canadian Legion continues to make and in the spirit of the organization’s mandate, thank a veteran.” – MPP Jeff Yurek, Elgin-Middlesex-London
