Mr. Speaker, it is with deep sadness that I inform the House that Canada’s Highway of Heroes will see another hero travel its length.
Later this afternoon, Corporal Cirillo and his family will return to Hamilton and his unit along the Highway of Heroes. This will allow Canadians in communities like those in Northumberland and my riding of Durham to pay respect to Corporal Cirillo.
I know I speak for all members of the House and all Canadians when I say that our thoughts and prayers are with his family. We stand with the Canadian Armed Forces at this time.
