Nov. 8 is Indigenous Veterans Day, a time to honour the important contributions made by First Nations, Inuit and Métis veterans here and overseas. The military service of First Nations, Inuit and Métis people has deep roots, and it is essential that we recognize, commemorate and remember their sacrifices as we continue to take steps on the journey towards reconciliation.
