Sworn into office in his Red Serge uniform we must have great respect for retired Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) officer David Wilks, MP. I appreciate his years in law enforcement & that his son serves in the Canadian Armed Forces. Families make great sacrifices to serve.
"And, to the men & women of the Canadian Armed Forces, on behalf of myself, my family, & the residents of Kootenay Columbia, thank you for your service."
