CTA Statement on Desecration of War-Terry Fox Monuments at Ottawa Protest

The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and the National War Memorial are sacred sites for Canadians. The desecration of these sites was a disgusting act and is a dishonour to those soldiers who have given their lives for our country and those Canadian soldiers who continue to fight for our freedom today.

Terry Fox is a national hero. The defacing of the Terry Fox monument is another disgusting act to the memory of one of the greatest Canadians in our history.

The Canadian Trucking Alliance condemns these acts in the strongest possible terms.

The Canadian Trucking Alliance will be donating to both the Terry Fox Foundation and Soldier on Fund.

 What is Soldier On?

Soldier On is recognized for improving the quality of life of the ill and injured and is a highly visible and integral component of the Department of National Defence, and the CAF’s commitment to the care of ill and injured members. Generous Canadians support the program through donations and fundraising to the Soldier On Fund, which is managed by Canadian Forces Morale and Welfare Services.
