Canada has lost two members of its armed forces in a matter of days. Stewart people respectfully remember warrant officer Patrice Vincent and Corporal Nathan Cirillo. The loss of these men's lives are a reminder to all Canadians that our armed forces are made up of brave men and women who give their lives so that we can enjoy our freedom in this great nation, that our country blessed by love, diversity and peace. Our deepest condolences to the families of two brave Canadian soldiers, they may be gone but Canada will always remain strong and free.
