Mr. Speaker, I would caution all members of this House against claiming some sort of a monopoly on caring about our nation's heroes.
Terry Fox is loved by Canadians, not because his picture was in the passport but because of the courage he demonstrated during the Marathon of Hope, and the research funding that has come to help advance care for cancer patients. My family has been affected by cancer, and I still celebrate Terry Fox's contributions to our national discourse. Let us look at the advocacy of the member for Oakville on Terry Fox's behalf to help secure funding to perpetuate his legacy and continue to improve cancer research.
We can commemorate our heroes in a number of ways, and we are committed to doing that.
