NDP statement on the 76th anniversary of the Dieppe Raid

Jagmeet Singh, Leader of Canada’s NDP, issued the following statement:

“On this day in 1942, the Allies launched a major raid on the French coastal port of Dieppe, where they faced heavy losses – 907 Canadian soldiers lost their lives, and thousands more were wounded or taken prisoner.

Today we remember the great courage of the soldiers who were there that day, including too many who lost their lives or came home forever scarred by the events of that day, and reflect on the families who lost their loved ones.”
