Darryl Walker
Mayor, City of White Rock

“On Remembrance Day, we recognize and honor those who have served and continue to serve our country, fighting for the liberties we enjoy today. On behalf of White Rock City Council, I want to thank those in active service, those who have lost loved ones to war, as well as the cadets, police, firefighters and other first responders who gather annually on November 11.

I look forward to honouring those who serve in person, while we remain careful to follow the Public Health Orders in place.”
