Nathan Cirillo was killed three years ago on Parliament Hill as he stood at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.
Corporal Nathan Cirillo was killed October 22, 2014 in the Parliament Hill Attack.
His killer was radical Islamist Michael Zehaf-Bibeau, who took Corporal Cirillo’s life while he stood guarding the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.
Today, many Canadians shared our thoughts on the importance of remembering Nathan Cirillo’s brave service to Canada:

As we stand together in honouring Corporal Nathan Cirillo, it is essential to remember that there are many brave Canadians standing on guard for our country at this very moment, in our military, intelligence services, and police departments. They put themselves at risk so that we don’t have to.
It’s also important to note that the threat of radical Islamist terrorism remains, and complacency and denial will only bring further danger upon our nation.
Securing the future is one of the best ways we can honour those who have been lost.
