CFN – Harper MP Guy Lauzon singled out a group of Cornwall Police that he stated were responsible for donating to the mystery man who sold his wedding ring, after 54 years of marriage, to allegedly pay for food for he and his wife who the story states is suffering from Alzheimer Disease.
He was speaking in Parliament on February 3, 2015 at 2PM.
The story received national attention even though no confirmation of the story or the parties involved has been released.
Here is Mr. Lauzon’s speech,
Mr. Speaker, I want to add my voice to those in Cornwall, in Canada, and
around the world praising the actions of some of Cornwall’s finest. They are
constables Kim Norman, Cody Casselman, Michel Riel, Rodney DeGray, Casey
MacGregor, James Lemoyre, sergeants Patrick Paquette, Dan Doyon, and George
Knezevic, as well as civilians Jody Sheard, Josee Lalonde, Claire Denis,
Jenna Legault, and Tasha Marcotte.
These individuals demonstrated how generous the Cornwall community is by
raising money to help an elderly man buy back the wedding ring he had pawned
in order to buy groceries for himself and his wife. These compassionate,
caring people saw a problem and took it upon themselves to correct it. They
truly demonstrated what it means to be a Canadian.
It is constituents like these who make me so proud to serve as the member
for Parliament for Stormont—Dundas—South Glengarry.
The story came to light after a member of the Police Board who also sits as a City Councilor broke the story at a live council session during the budget hearings. Chief Dan Parkinson is asking for another yearly bump in the cost of services for our city.
