Dear Constituents of Sarnia-Lambton,

This past week, Canadians have been shocked by terrorist events in Quebec and in our Nation’s Capital.

As the Member of Parliament for Sarnia-Lambton, I first seek to send my condolences to the families and friends of Cpl. Nathan Cirillo and Warrant Officer Patrice Vincent.

On behalf of the constituents of Sarnia-Lambton, I wish to thank the Men and Women of the various security forces who responded to each of these separate attacks in order to protect the public from further violence. Your efforts likely prevented further bloodshed and will be considered nothing less than heroic.

I also want to personally thank the numerous constituents who reached out to me through my office to express their concern towards my safety and that of my office, as well as letting me know that they are there in support for me and the Members of the House of Commons as we stayed strong through yesterday’s ordeal in Ottawa.

I also thank those who have opened up their hearts to pay tribute to the fallen Canadian soldiers, taken before their time in these despicable acts of depravity and cowardice.

Those who perpetrate such dark acts of evil will never prevail, Canada will Always Stand Strong.

Despite the terrorist nature of these events, the reality is that Today, Canadians stand as United as ever, as in our Nation's Parliament we celebrate our Freedoms, Values and Love that will always triumph over darkness and those who seek to strike fear into our hearts through evil actions.

We will remember the names Cpl. Nathan Cirillo and Warrant Officer Patrice Vincent, who will live forever in the hearts and minds of all Canadians because of their valiant and courageous service to our Nation.

God Bless Canada.
Pat Davidson
