Madam Speaker, it gives me great pleasure to recognize the 150th Anniversary of Military Service of the Lorne Scots Regiment.
We celebrated them in my riding of Oakville with the unveiling of a monument recognizing their battle honours and Regimental Insignia.
From fighting on the Queenston Heights in Niagara to most recently the International Security Assistance Force in Kandahar Province, Afghanistan, the Lorne Scots have recruited, trained, and generated soldiers for every theatre of war in which Canada has engaged.
The Regiment has also supported Canada’s numerous contributions to international peace and security through the UN and NATO.
As we commemorate the 150th Regimental Anniversary, I ask this House to honour the brave young men and women of the Lorne Scots Regiment who have so selflessly dedicated themselves, and lest we forget, the many who have paid the ultimate sacrifice in their service to Canada.
May the Lorne Scots long continue.
Air Son Ar Duthchais!
