Today marks the 101st Anniversary of the signing of the armistice that ended the First World War. Remembrance Day is our annual opportunity to mark that anniversary and to remember and honour the sacrifices that so many brave Canadians soldiers made in that war, in the wars and conflicts that followed, and continue to make today.
Last week my colleague Mike Lake announced our Conservative Party's plan to develop a national autism strategy alongside Canada's largest ever federal investment in autism. Take a listen to Mike and his son Jaden's full announcement:
Mike Lake Today, Jaden and I are excited to be able to share some big news - that the Conservative Party of Canada election platform will include a National Autism Strategy - Canada's largest ever federal investment in autism!
And since Jaden loves airplanes, it's fitting that there was an airplane buzzing around in the background as we shot the video. ✈ 😊
Huge thanks to all who have been involved over the years in passionately advocating for a National Autism Strategy, and to the autistic Canadians, families and other experts who weighed in on this particular platform commitment!
Finally, it's rare for an election platform announcement to be made by someone other than the party leader. Thank you, Andrew Scheer, for allowing me and Jaden the privilege of personally making this announcement that is so near to our heart, in a way that was so comfortable for us.
