OTTAWA, Aug. 9, 2014 /CNW/ - The Honourable Julian Fantino, Minister of Veterans Affairs, today issued the following statement to mark National Peacekeepers' Day.
"Canadian peacekeepers are internationally respected for the unparalleled contributions they have made to peace and stability the world over. Today, on National Peacekeepers' Day, I am honoured to recognize their heroic efforts.
"For more than six decades, members of the Canadian Armed Forces, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, provincial and municipal police forces, as well as civilians and diplomats, have worked together to maintain peace and stability throughout the world.
"On August 9, 1974, nine Canadian Armed Forces members were killed when their plane was shot down during a United Nations supply flight in the Middle East. This remains the largest single-day loss for our country during a peacekeeping mission. Today, we not only remember them, but also the more than 275 Canadians who have lost their lives in peace-support missions around the world.
"On behalf of a grateful nation, I offer heartfelt thanks to all Canadians who have served as peacekeepers. Their achievements, courage and commitment have made a profound difference in the lives of people around the world."
