In Memoriam

Prime Minister Stephen Harper released the following statement on the death earlier today of Captain Nichola Kathleen Sarah Goddard during a significant operation in support of Afghan authorities west of Kandahar City:"On behalf of all Canadians, I wish to express our profound regret and sadness at news of the death of Captain Nichola Goddard."Captain Goddard died while helping to bring peace, stability and democracy to a troubled region of the world. She, and the other men and women who serve in Afghanistan, are involved in a difficult and dangerous mission. They are serving our country and its people with distinction. Our nation will not forget their sacrifice."I wish to extend our deepest condolences to Captain Goddard's family, friends, and co-workers - particularly those at her home base of 1 Royal Canadian Horse Artillery (1 RCHA) in Shilo, Manitoba. Our thoughts and prayers are with them and with the families and loved ones of all those serving in Afghanistan."
