OTTAWA, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 08/09/14 -- Public Safety Canada
Today, the Honourable Steven Blaney, Minister of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness, made the following statement to highlight National Peacekeepers' Day.
"National Peacekeepers' Day recognizes and honours Canadians who have served or are currently serving in peace missions around the world.
Many serve on these missions, including police officers from the Royal Canadian Mounted Police and provincial and municipal forces, as well as personnel from the Canada Border Services Agency and the Correctional Service of Canada. They train and advise foreign law enforcement officers, border and correctional staff to promote the rule of law and uphold human rights. Their dedication and selfless service have contributed to improving the security and stability of troubled countries including Haiti and Afghanistan.
This year also marks the 25th anniversary of Canadian police contributions to international peace operations. Thousands of Canadian police serve in peacekeeping missions around the world to assist foreign police to maintain law and order, and create a safer environment for their communities.
Today, please take the time to reflect and thank the men and women who have sacrificed so much to ensure that others are able to live in a peaceful and secure world."
