In Memorial of Fallen Firefighters

S. Simpson: I’d like to join with the minister in her comments. I think that we all understand very keenly the role that firefighters and all first responders play for us in British Columbia, how important that role is and how they put themselves in the way of danger every day, and they do that on behalf of British Columbians.

Many of them, as we heard of the 14 firefighters that were recognized today, paid the ultimate sacrifice, and their families also paid that sacrifice, losing loved ones. I’m sure that all members of the Legislature want to offer our profound thanks to the firefighters for everything they do and our condolences and wishes for the families of those who were lost and who were recognized today.
