    Gail Shea“The last two days have been challenging for me, my colleagues and all those caught up in the midst of this terrorist attack. I would like to express my sincere gratitude to the brave men and women who ensured our safety. Thanks to those who have sent messages of support, it is very much appreciated. My prayers are with the family and loved ones of Corporal Nathan Cirillo who was shot while proudly standing guard at our National War Memorial. My thoughts are also with the family and friends of Warrant Officer Patrice Vincent, who was killed earlier this week. I was extremely proud this morning to be at my seat at the House of Commons. Canada is a peaceful and democratic country and we must not let terrorists impact our values and society.” The Honourable Gail Shea, Minister of Fisheries and Oceans, Regional Minister for PEI and MP for Egmont

    Costas MenegakisStatement by the Prime Minister of Canada in Ottawa Prime Minister Stephen Harper today delivered the following remarks: “My fellow Canadians, for the second time this week there has been a brutal and violent attack on our soil. “Today, our thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends of Corporal Nathan Cirillo of the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders of Canada. “Corporal Cirillo was killed today – murdered in cold blood – as he provided a ceremonial Honour Guard at Canada’s National War Memorial. “That sacred place that pays tribute to those who gave their lives so that we can live in a free, democratic and safe society. “Likewise, our thoughts and prayers remain also with the family and friends of Warrant Officer Patrice Vincent, who was killed earlier this week by an ISIL-inspired terrorist. “Tonight we also pray for the speedy recovery of the others injured in these despicable attacks. “Fellow Canadians, we have also been reminded today of the compassionate and courageous nature of so many Canadians. “Like those private citizens and first responders who came to provide aid to Corporal Cirillo as he fought for his life. “And of course the members of our security forces in the RCMP, the City of Ottawa Police, and in Parliament who came quickly, and at great risk to themselves, to assist those of us who were close to the attack. “Fellow Canadians, in the days to come, we will learn more about the terrorist and any accomplices he may have had. “But this week’s events are a grim reminder that Canada is not immune to the types of attacks we have seen elsewhere around the world. “We are also reminded that attacks on our security personnel and our institutions of governance are, by their very nature, attacks on our country. “On our values, on our society, on us, Canadians, as a free and democratic people who embrace human dignity for all. “But let there be no misunderstanding. “We will not be intimidated. “Canada will never be intimidated. “In fact, this will lead us to strengthen our resolve and redouble our efforts and those of our national security agencies to take all necessary steps to identify and counter threats, and keep Canada safe here at home. “Just as it will lead us to strengthen our resolve and redouble our efforts to work with our allies around the world and fight against the terrorist organizations who brutalize those in other countries with the hope of bringing their savagery to our shores. “They will have no safe haven. “While today has been, without question, a difficult day, I have every confidence that Canadians will pull together with the kind of firm solidarity that has seen our country through many challenges. “Together, we will remain vigilant against those at home or abroad who wish to harm us. “For now, Laureen, Ben, Rachel and I join all Canadians in praying for those touched by today’s attack. “May God bless them, and keep our land glorious and free.”

The festival spiritually signifies the victory of light over darkness, knowledge over ignorance, good over evil, and hope over despair.

    Leona AglukkaqOn behalf of my family I would like to express our heartfelt prayers and condolences to the family and friends of Corporal Nathan Cirillo for his sacrifice in the line of duty. Corporal Cirillo will forever be remembered as a great Canadian. I would also like to extend our thoughts and prayers to those affected and recovering from yesterday’s heinous attack. In addition, I owe my deepest gratitude to Sergeant-at-Arms Kevin Vickers and the rest of our first responders and police forces. I will never forget the personal risk that these brave women and men went through yesterday in order to protect those of us at Parliament and ensure that we made it home to our families. Canada is a great country and we have given many sacrifices over the years to ensure that Canadians can enjoy a free and safe society. As we move on from the events of yesterday, I want to say thank you to all who have expressed concern and support to me and my family during this difficult time. Nagligivapsi.

We would also like to thank all the branches of security services who did selfless work on behalf of everyone yesterday, especially Senate Security who patrol East Block, where my office is located. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends of Cpt. Nathan Cirillo, a member of the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders of Canada in Hamilton. A book will be set up in my Burlington Mall office for you to express your condolences.

    Rodney WestonTo everyone who expressed their concern for my welfare and that of my colleagues I would like to sincerely thank you. Your messages certainly brightened a long, stressful day filled with uncertainty. It was a day I will never forget, but we are fine and back at work today. I also want to express my sincere condolences to the families and friends of Cpl. Nathan Cirillo who died yesterday here in Ottawa and Warrant Officer Patrice Vincent who was struck down in Quebec earlier this week. We, as a country, have been robbed of two fine men. They may be gone but they will live on in our hearts as true Canadian heroes. Finally, I want to express my thanks to men and women of the Parliament Hill Security, the R.C.M.P., the Ottawa Police Force and most importantly the Sergeant-at-Arms, Kevin Vickers. Your courage and commitment to our welfare under such trying circumstances is appreciated. Thank you again for your kindness, Rodney

    Earl DreeshenI was deeply troubled by yesterday’s events on Parliament Hill. This was the second time in a week that Canada has experienced a violent act of terror on our own soil. Parliament is for the people of Canada; this was not just an attack on the legislature of Canada but on Canada as a whole. Yesterday serves as a grim reminder that we are not immune to such horrendous acts but one thing is clear, yesterday could have been even more tragic if it weren’t for the brave men and women in uniform that guard and protect our Parliament. They served valiantly and heroically securing Parliament and keeping me, my colleagues, and my staff safe. I would like to especially acknowledge and thank Sergeant-at-Arms Kevin Vickers for his heroism. I cannot convey in words the gratitude I feel for Sergeant Vickers. I would also like to thank everyone back in Red Deer and across the country that tried to reach out and contact me yesterday. While I was unable to respond, I did hear your concerns and it was very much appreciated. I can proudly say that today Parliament opened at 10am as usual, because one thing is clear, we cannot, and we will never be intimidated. Such acts shall only serve to strengthen our resolve and bring us closer together as a nation. Lastly I want to extend my deepest condolences to the families and friends of Corporal Nathan Cirillo and Warrant Officer Patrice Vincent. They died serving our nation and will remain forever True Canadian Heroes. A wise man once said, a man dies twice, first when he takes his last breath and second when his name is mentioned for the last time. So let us insure that Warrant Officer Patrice Vincent and Corporal Nathan Cirillo live forever in our hearts and minds and that their memory never fades. We are forever indebted to their heroism and service to our nation. Lest we forget. Sincerely, Earl Dreeshen Member of Parliament for Red Deer
