Maple Leafs recognize Indigenous Veteran's Day
Recognizing the contributions of veterans is an ingrained part of being a Canadian, taking a moment to pause and thank them for their services and sacrifices on November 11. From childhood, many of us recite the words to In Flanders' Fields, and in adulthood, it is second nature to sport poppies on our coats. Three days before Remembrance Day, is a day on the calendars that is rarely celebrated, despite it being just as important. Indigenous Veterans Day honours the First Nations, Métis and Inuit volunteers who have enlisted in the armed services.
