On October 22, Cpl. Nathan Cirillo was shot and killed as he stood on guard at the National War Memorial in Ottawa.

The war memorial is a place where people gather to pay their respects to the men and women who have sacrificed their lives, and their future hopes and dreams, for their country. He too has paid the ultimate sacrifice for a country that he loved. He stood there for all Canadians who value and honour the ideals that make us proud to call this great nation home.

Cpl. Cirillo leaves behind a six-year-old son. Glacier Media, which owns newspapers across Western Canada, as well as FundAid, is inviting its staff and readers to donate to this crowdfunding campaign in honour of Cpl. Cirillo. The money will be given to a trust fund for his son. It's a way for us to join people from coast to coast to coast to honour and pay tribute to a man who represented all that was good about Canada.

Both Glacier Media and Fundrazr, our FundAid partner, have waived the service fees as their contribution to the campaign.
