Armed Forces Day - 2018 April 19th, 2018

I am proud to announce that the City of North Bay, with support from the Honorary Colonels at 22 Wing/Canadian Forces Base North Bay, will host the eighth annual Armed Forces Day.

Armed Forces Day provides us all in North Bay with an opportunity to show our unwavering support to the men and women who have and still are proudly serving in the Canadian Armed Forces and our country.

I am proud to be the son and a grandson of former members of the Canadian Armed Forces. My dad served for 28 years and both my grandfathers served in WW2.

On Wednesday, June 13th, at North Bay’s beautiful waterfront, we will take time to honour their service, their skills, their courage and above all, their sacrifice.

This is our chance to really pause, take in the sights, sounds and privileges that, I daresay, we take for granted as Canadians, and to honour the people that make our country the best on earth.
