Mrs. Carol Hughes (Algoma—Manitoulin—Kapuskasing, NDP)
Mr. Speaker, the second petition is in support of the creation of the defence of Canada medal for the men and women who defended our country during the Cold War. The medal would officially honour those who served in the defence of Canada's borders from 1946 to 1989.
The petitioners note that this medal would recognize the support of the many men and women who gave countless hours of service to their country as they trained and prepared in case of an attack on Canadian soil, which fortunately never happened.
The petitioners call on the government to support Bill C-270, which would create a defence of Canada medal.
