Contact MP Ellis office to honour Second World War veterans with commemorative pin

Bay of Quinte MP Neil Ellis is seeking the public’s assistance to honour Second World War veterans in the community.

To honour the bravery and sacrifice displayed more than 75 years ago, local Second World War Veterans are to be presented with a Second World War tribute.

This commemorative lapel pin and certificate of recognition signed by the Minister of Veterans Affairs were created to honour the extraordinary role Canadians played in the Allied victory 75 years ago.

The commemorative lapel pin is based on the “Victory Nickel”, a coin that was circulated during the war and re-issued in 2005, commemorating the 60th anniversary of V-E Day. The coin features a flaming torch and large “V”, which stood for both victory and the coin’s value in Roman numerals.

There are roughly 30,000 living Canadian Second World War veterans.

Living Canadians who served during the Second World War with Canadian or any Allied forces, including the Canadian or British Merchant Navy, qualify to receive a Second World War Tribute.

If you are a Second World War veteran or know of a WWII veteran deserving of this honour, contact the office of MP Neil Ellis at 613-969-3310.

For further details on this program, contact Skip Simpson (613) 969-3310 or email him at
