Military Mottos From Canada
Canadian Military Mottos
( I remember)
le Royal 22ieme Regiment
It is also the motto from the province of Quebec.
We must remember those who came before us and gave their lives for our country
and our regiment.
In terms of Canadian history, "Je me souviens" (I remember) has always
been associated with the Conquest, which is the name given to the process by
which Britain gained complete control of the North American colonies after the
Battle of the Plains of Abraham in 1759. "Je me souviens" has since
been used by French Nationalists as a rallying cry for Quebec's status as a
'distinct society', because French Canadian culture predates the political
entity that is Canada by a matter of hundreads of years. "I Remember",
then, essentially means "I remember the days before the British took
over" to a French Canadian.
