Mr. Speaker, I rise today to honour the life of Donald Munroe Blackmere, a veteran in my riding, who recently passed away at the age of 95.
Don served with the Royal Canadian Army during World War II, from 1940 to 1945, and was a member of the Streetsville Royal Canadian Legion Branch 139.
In 2015, Don was appointed a Knight of the National Order of the Legion of Honour by the request of the French government, for his service to the liberation of France. His bravery and service to our country will not be forgotten.
I ask that all members of the House join me in honouring the courageous life of Donald Blackmere.
