News & Announcements

Canada Remembers:  Two years ago yesterday on March 12, 2014 – the Canadian Armed Forces lowered the Canadian flag in Afghanistan for the last time as Canada’s military mission in the country came to an end.

Port Coquitlam residents were among those who served.

From June 28, 2010 City Council Minutes

Item No. 4a
His Worship Mayor G. Moore introduced and welcomed back Warrant Officer Ellick Pau, Corporals Justin Litzenberger, Trevor Street and Kyle Yorston, who had recently returned from serving our country in Afghanistan. Mayor Moore also welcomed the Seaforth 2893 Cadets, the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 133 Port Coquitlam members, and members of the Port Coquitlam Fire Honour Guard for joining in the celebration of their return.

The soldiers were returning the City of Port Coquitlam flags that they took with them to Afghanistan to display proudly while they were serving Canada. This was part of a “Flag Project” that the Kandahar City Provincial Reconstruction Team (KPRT) was involved in. The KPRT consisted of over 500 Canadians from across the nation and the flag project allowed them to fly various City flags at the entrance of their camp.

Warrant Officer Ellick Pau’s unit was involved in the project and presented a Certificate of Recognition to the City for being involved in the “Flag Project”. Corporals Litzenberger, Street and Yorston were not allowed to display the flag at their camp due to insurgents; however, they put the flag up in their shared tent. They also presented the City with an Afghanistan flag.
