“Indeed, Every Single Time Canadians Fought Terrorists – Terrorists Died”: Doug Ford Statement Honouring The Heroes Of The War In Afghanistan

“Today we honour the heroes of the war in Afghanistan, including the 159 Canadians who made the ultimate sacrifice. All Canadians will be forever indebted to their bravery.”

Ontario Premier Doug Ford has issued a statement on the 17th anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks. In the statement, Ford honoured the Canadian heroes of the war in Afghanistan.

Ford’s statement can be read below:

“Seventeen years ago today, the world was paralyzed after the brutal terrorist attack on the World Trade Centre and the Pentagon. Almost three thousand people, including at least 24 Canadians, lost their lives in those attacks or onboard the plane brought down in Pennsylvania.

In the aftermath of that brutal attack, Canadians rallied to fight for freedom and democracy. This includes the brave women and men of the Canadian Armed Forces who fought the terrorists of Al Qaeda and the Taliban during the war in Afghanistan.

Indeed, every single time Canadians fought terrorists — terrorists died. The men and women of the Canadian Armed Forces were among the true heroes of Afghanistan and today the world is a safer place thanks to their service and sacrifice.

Today we honour the heroes of the war in Afghanistan, including the 159 Canadians who made the ultimate sacrifice. All Canadians will be forever indebted to their bravery.

Today our government is proud to pay tribute to all veterans of the war in Afghanistan by building a new memorial in their honour on the grounds of the legislative precinct at Queen’s Park. This memorial will stand as a testament to the bravery of our veterans, and the sacrifices made by our troops.

We will always respect our veterans, our soldiers and their families. We celebrate their courage and are grateful for their service.”

Much more genuine than Trudeau’s Sept 11 statement. I appreciate Ford’s recognition of our veterans ‘ sacrifice.

A true Canadian Patriot, other than from the USA very little has been said here for our own men and women in the Armed Forces, thank you Doug Ford, you bring a well deserved proud honour to our Forces, and all true Canadians. I usually spend a quiet moment to remember, but forgot this year, thank you Spencer for this reminder, I feel there is great need for this.

Check out “Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth”. Ford undermines all his good work by accepting the official story of 9/11. The War on Terror is a very real war on us all, under colour of saving us if we only give up our basic freedoms and shut up about where our foreign policy takes us.

We love Ford for that: for his genuine compassion and his interest in Canadians and Ontarians. There is hope that with leaders like Ford the creation of Babel Tower by the Trudeau Liberals in Canada will become a bad memory. Mr. Ford understands balance and brings sanity to our lives. We love Ford dearly.
