TORONTO, Sept. 22, 2011 /CNW/ - As thousands of police personnel members
of Ontario's Police Services travel to Ottawa to participate
in the Canadian Police Memorial, honouring those who have made the
ultimate sacrifice for their fellow citizens, we are deeply troubled at
the remarks of Anthony Marco, NDP candidate.
Police officers face life and death issues every single day. In each
and every duty, however routine, police duties are fraught with
peril. Officer Garrett Styles of York Region, one of those we
honour Sunday in Ottawa, is the most recent Ontario example.
Firefighters have been similarly dismissed by Mr. Marco, as have doctors
who face different challenges, but are no less brave. This lack of
understanding is beyond us.
Our membership is insulted at the continued inclusion of Anthony Marco
on the NDP ticket.
