On Thursday, the last day before memorial Day, the representatives of all parties in the Legislative Assembly of Ontario honored the memory of veterans by standing.
Ford said that throughout history the people of Canada and Ontario have proven that their commitment to the core principles of freedom are inviolable.
He says that from the battle of Cambrai in the First world war to the fighting in Afghanistan from more recent events, the Canadians bravely resisted tyranny and terror.
MP new Democrats Jenny Stevens, the mother of petty officer second class, Royal canadian Navy, issued a statement from his party.
