For Immediate Release
Statement by U.S. Chargé d’Affaires, a.i. Katherine Brucker on
Canada’s National Day of Observance for COVID-19
“President Biden has said, in order to heal, we must remember. Today we join our Canadian friends and partners in commemorating all those who lost their lives because of COVID-19.
As we reflect on the profound loss experienced in the past year, we draw hope and inspiration from the many stories of courage from across our two countries, of neighbors helping neighbors, of communities coming together, and of the heroism of our frontline workers.
We are committed to working closely together with our Canadian neighbors to defeat the virus and strengthen our resilience against future outbreaks. And when we do, we will continue to remember each person we’ve lost, the lives they lived, and the loved ones they left behind.”
