Study says Canadians feel more should be done for veterans

Honouring our heroes

A new study indicates that most Canadians feel we should be doing more to honour veterans as Remembrance Day rolls around on Monday.

The Study from non-profit Angus Reid Institute, based in Vancouver, finds one-in-four Canadians say they’ll attend a formal service on November 11, while the same number say they might. But 80 per cent say we should do more to remember those who have served.

The study also finds the passage of time since the World War’s also means oral history of veterans’ experiences, passed down through the generations, is increasingly lost. Three-in-ten Canadians say they recall having a conversation with a veteran of the First World War. (Canada’s last surviving veteran of that conflict died in 2010.) Stories from the Second World War, however, are more present in the lives of people today: seven-in-ten say they have had conversations with veterans of that war about what they experienced.
