The natives are so special that they get their very own day to honor the three native vets.Give them a boost in their welfare checks and thank them for all the wonderful things they do for Canada.

Natives stepped up and served during WW2 in Canada's time of need, unlike the special pampered cry babys in our distinct province in the east.

What a joke. We are going way overboard with this "let's make Natives feel special" crap. Celebrate Remembrance Day like the rest of us do on the 11th, you fools.

This is a load of crap. As a veteran you serve by nationality. Canadian veterans, god bless 'em, are just that. CANADIAN VETERANS!!

People that are too lazy to wear a poppy on Remembrance Day don't deserve to live in this country.

I can't believe the racism. It was not until 1995 that Canadian native vets were allowed to march and lay wreaths at the same time as other veterans. Tired of waiting after 50 yrs the were forced to remember on a separate day.
