Canadians Honour The Sacrifice Of Corporal Nathan Cirillo

4 years ago, Corporal Cirillo was murdered by a terrorist at the National War Memorial.

Leaders across Canada are honouring the sacrifice of Corporal Nathan Cirillo, who was killed by a jihadist terrorist while guarding the National War Memorial:

“On this day 4 years ago, Corporal Nathan Cirillo was murdered while standing guard at the National War Memorial in Ottawa. Let us never forget the sacrifices our brave men and woman in uniform make to protect our country from the forces of unspeakable evil in this world.”

“This is the fourth anniversary of the attempted terrorist attack against Parliament, and of the murder of Cpl. Nathan Cirillo. As we honour Cpl. Cirillo today, we commit ourselves again to our fight to rid the world of terrorism:”

“Canada’s Peace Tower flag should be at half-mast today. October 22nd marks 4 years since the attempted terrorist attack on #ParliamentHill, and the murder of Cpl. Nathan Cirillo at the #NationalWarMemorial. This demands the highest level of our country’s respect and remembrance.”

Saskatchewan Premier Scott Moe honoured Cirillo and Warrant Officer Patrice Vincent – who was murdered when an ISIS-inspired terrorist ran him over with a vehicle.

“4 years ago, Cpl. Nathan Cirillo and W.O. Patrice Vincent were senselessly murdered in the service of our nation. May we never take for granted the work of our women & men in uniform, and may we never forget those who paid the ultimate sacrifice in the line of duty.”

“Four years ago today, Corporal Nathan Cirillo was shot and killed while standing as he stood guard at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. May we never forget Corporal Cirillo’s years of service and his sacrifice for our country. #LestWeForget”

“Take a moment today to remember – Cpl Nathan Cirillo and WO Patrice Vincent.”

We must always remember and honour the sacrifice of those who stand on guard for Canada. And we must confront and defeat the ideology of Islamism that is still putting Canadians at risk.

To those, especially our military, who are only too willing to sacrifice their lives , in protection of ours, we owe them everything. But people such as Trudeau, who like his father before, are always too willing to diminish and reduce the efforts of our military , who stand on guard for all Canadians and Canada, it is asking too much of them to honour our military and especially those who gave their all for Canada. For Trudeau , to even consider the lowering of our national flag to half staff, on the anniversary of such a tragic , but… Read more »

Respect for all the men and women who protect our country should be taught in schools and adults should be made more aware of what is going on in our nation. Everyday these men and women put their lives on the line for us. Thank you. My thoughts and great respect for you.

Thank-you for this, Spencer.

He was actually guarding the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, though.

And, no, the flag on the Peace Tower should NOT be at half-staff today. 11 November is the day for that, the same for ALL of our war dead, regardless of when and where they died. Were it any other way, the flag would forever be at half-staff.
