NDP Leader Tom Mulcair made the following statement on Veterans’ week:
“Every day Canadian men and women risk their lives to protect those in danger and to defend peace, justice, equality and freedom around the world. It is thanks to them, and those who sacrificed before them, that today we may live in peace and freedom. Veterans’ Week is an opportunity to pay tribute to our veterans and acknowledge their significant contributions. They deserve our gratitude, respect and support.
