Mr. Speaker, next week Canada welcomes military members and veterans from around the world for the third annual Invictus Games in Toronto. Invictus means unconquerable. The games allow injured veterans to use friendly competition and support from family, friends, and their country to help them on their journey back to wellness.
I want to welcome all competitors to Canada, and wish them luck.
Good luck to all the veterans competing in the games.
These games would not be possible without the support of loving families, sponsors, and volunteers. I want to thank them all for their passion.
I also want to thank my good friend Michael Burns, who has dedicated the last decade of his life to military families and veterans. From True Patriot Love to running the Invictus Games, Michael is making such a positive impact on the lives of military families. I am proud that our alma mater, Dalhousie University, is recognizing his work with an honorary degree. Congratulations to Dr. Burns.
I would like to thank the volunteers at the Invictus games. Go Canada go.
