Veterans injured in the line of duty could soon find themselves at the front of the line when it comes to federal job openings thanks to a proposal unveiled by the Conservative government.

Who are The Remembrance Day ceremonies for?
Kawartha Lakes This Week
I understand Remembrance Day. My great-great-grandfather joined the Canadian Militia in 1860. My great-grandfather volunteered for the Boer War in South Africa and was awarded the Victoria Cross and later volunteered again for WWI. Both of my grandfathers volunteered for WWI and one volunteered again for WWII. My dad volunteered and was a navigator in the Lancaster bomber in WWII.
