Today, Madeleine Meilleur, Minister of Community Safety and Correctional Services, released the following statement:
"As we observe, National Peacekeepers' Day, I wish to extend, on behalf of the McGuinty government, our appreciation to those Ontario police and correctional services officers who serve on peacekeeping missions overseas. The men and women who serve as Ontario's provincial and municipal police officers and correctional services officers have worked alongside military peacekeepers around the world -- maintaining safety and stability in troubled regions -- for many years. Their guidance, dedication and professionalism help restore peace following conflict. Ontarians are proud of their contribution to making the world a safer place."
