Veterans' Week Activities - Province of Quebec



    MONTREAL, Nov. 7 /CNW Telbec/ - The Canadian Forces will support Veterans
Affairs Canada and the Royal Canadian Legion during the remembrance activities
that will take place between November 7 and 11, 2007 in the province of
Quebec.
    The Canadian Forces are proud of their heritage. Military members are
honoured and pleased to join our veterans in highlighting the courage and
sacrifices made by Canadian soldiers to protect the values that are dear to
Canadians.
    To keep the memory alive, Canadian Forces members will once again this
year support our veterans in remembering the heroes of yesterday and today in
communities around the province of Quebec. Military members will therefore be
present at several Remembrance Day ceremonies across the province. As well, at
the request of more than 30 schools, Canadian Forces members will visit
students and share their experiences and military heritage during Veteran's
Week.

    Please find enclosed the list of activities that will take place between
November 7 and 11, 2007 for which there will be a military presence as well as
points of contact for each.
