The federal government is marking the 75th anniversary of Canada's involvement in World War II with a commemorative lapel pin for veterans.

To mark the 75th anniversary of Canada’s engagement in World War II, a limited- edition commemorative lapel pin and certificate has been created to honour living World War II Veterans.

Chilliwack-Fraser Canyon MP Mark Strahl is asking people who know a World War II Veteran living in his constituency to contact his office so that he can recognize them.

“This new national tribute is an expression of the enormous pride all Canadians share for our Second World War Veterans. A grateful nation will never forget their courage and sacrifice,” said Strahl.

For further details, Veterans of the Second World War or those who know of a Second World War Veteran living in Chilliwack-Fraser Canyon are encouraged to contact Mark Strahl’s office at 604-847-9711 or by email at mark.strahl@parl.gc.ca.
