UOI OFFICES (Oct.23,2014) –

I would like to express my condolences to the families of both Canadian Forces members who were killed in St-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec and Ottawa this week.

As we draw closer to Remembrance Day, we think about all those who have served and are serving in conflicts all over the world.  First Nations have stood and fought with fellow Canadians for hundreds of years to protect the freedom of this great land.

Thoughts and prayers also go out to those who were injured or harmed in the yesterday’s attack in Ottawa.
