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

Nearly 21,000 Canadians took part in the Normandy landings with the goal to free Europe from the grips of the Nazi regime, On June 6, 1944.

74 years later, we still look to the the courage displayed during this moment as an example of valor and honour.

Those who made the ultimate sacrifice had their young lives cut short, so that we could stand here today as free people - we will never forget them.

On behalf of all New Democrats, on the 74th anniversary of the Normandy landings, we let all our veterans know just how grateful we are for their service.
