( BROCKVILLE ) – Leeds-Grenville MPP Steve Clark has set up a Book of Condolence for Corporal Nathan Cirillo at his constituency office, Suite 101, 100 Strowger Boulevard in Brockville.
Cpl. Cirillo, a reservist with the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders regiment based in Hamilton , was gunned down Wednesday while guarding the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier on Parliament Hill.
Clark said he wanted to give residents of Leeds-Grenville an opportunity to pay their respects to Cpl. Cirillo and honour the bravery of the young father, who leaves behind a six-year-old son.
“All Canadians were shocked by the cowardly murder of Cpl. Cirillo and the disgusting attack on the heart of our democracy in Canada ,” said Clark . “Cpl. Cirillo gave his life in the line of duty, defending the values and principles that define us as Canadians.”
The Book of Condolence will be available to sign today and next week during constituency office hours from 8:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m.
