Legion issues statement of condemnation<br>Protestors disrespect site of National War Memorial

The Royal Canadian Legion strongly condemns the shocking actions of protestors who encroached upon the National War Memorial in Ottawa on Saturday. They jumped on the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and parked vehicles on the surrounding grounds. This sacred memorial site commemorates those who fought and fell for the very freedoms that allow people in Canada the right to protest peacefully. We are dismayed and saddened by this overt lack of respect.

Publisher’s Note: Hopefully the original intent of the convoy will not be lost because of the bad behaviour of the individuals who disrespected the War Memorial and Terry Fox statue. Shame on those who were involved in this disgraceful act.[/et_pb_testimonial][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][/et_pb_section]
