Military Mottos From Canada
Canadian Military Mottos

"Je me souviens"
( I remember)

le Royal 22ieme Regiment from Canada. 
 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.
(Thanks to MR. Thompson)

(Latin:"guarantee of safety" or "Securing")

Canadian Military Police
Canadian Military Police are probably unique in the world as they are
classified as Peace Officers in terms of the Canadian Criminal Code, and
because this gives them the same powers as civilian police they have the
power to arrest civilians and any member of the Canadian Forces, regardless of RANK!
