Memorial held at National War Memorial for two slain soldiersOctober 22, 2015
A solemn ceremony was held today in Ottawa for the one-year anniversary of the Parliament Hill attack. Politicians, soldiers and the public gathered at the National War Memorial, where Corporal Nathan Cirillo was gunned down while standing guard on October 22, 2014. The gunman was eventually shot dead after running through the Centre Block in the House of Commons. This occurred two days after the killing of another soldier; Warrant Officer Patrice Vincent was fatally run over by a vehicle in Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec. In attendance were Prime Minister Stephen Harper, Prime Minister-Designate Justin Trudeau, and Governor General David Johnston, who made a commemoration speech for the slain soldiers. Members of the Cirillo and Vincent families were present, along with members of Cirillo’s regiment, and those representing police and first responders.
