Mr. Speaker it is my sad duty to inform the House that there has been a vehicle accident in Afghanistan involving Canadian soldiers that has tragically resulted in four injuries and the death of a Canadian soldier, an unfortunate reminder of the risks that our men and women in uniform undertake on behalf of our country.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the families and friends of these Canadian Forces members. All next of kin have been notified.
I am certain that all hon. members of this House join me in sending our sympathy to the families affected and the victims of this unfortunate accident.
