Notice of motion: Honouring Calgary's serving soldiers
First brought to Council: July 25, 2011
Outcome: Carried as amended
Canadian soldiers served in Afghanistan for almost ten years and some have even stayed on to help train and mentor the Afghan National Army. Many sacrifices have been made, including lives lost protecting rights and freedoms, and assisting the Afghanistan rebuild. These soldiers defend Canada's national interests abroad and secure a place for Canada's leadership in world affairs.
Canada's soldiers clearly deserve a public display of support and gratitude for their sacrifices. Alderman Demong along with some of his Council colleagues proposed a well-earned public display of appreciation for Canada's serving soldiers.
