Police And Peace Officers’ National Memorial Day
September 26, 2016
OTTAWA: Jim Eglinski, Member of Parliament for Yellowhead, rose in the House to pay tribute to the Police and Peace Officers’ 39th Annual Memorial service held on Parliament Hill and across our Nation on Sunday, September 25th.
On September 26, MP Eglinski stated:
“Mr. Speaker, yesterday on Parliament Hill and across Canada police officers met to honour and respect our fallen. The Canadian Police and Peace Officers’ 39th Annual Memorial service honoured more than 850 men and women whose names are engraved on the honour roll tablets on Parliament Hill.
This year, the names of five officers have been added to the memorial as a permanent reminder of their contributions and their sacrifices.
Last Friday, I paid tribute to Constable Chelsey Robinson, who died in the line of duty. A local park in my riding was dedicated to her. We must not forget those who made the ultimate sacrifice.
My deep gratitude goes out to all of the police and peace officers across this country for their dedication to keeping our communities safe.”
