Hughes pays tribute to Constable David Dennie in Parliament

Ottawa – Carol Hughes delayed a speech in parliament to pay tribute to Constable David Dennie, who lost his life in a tragic accident yesterday.

Here is a transcript of her tribute:

“I would like to take a brief moment to pay tribute to Constable David Dennie, who died in a tragic motor vehicle accident yesterday in Blind River while off duty.

Constable Dennie from the Blind River Detachment served for 12 years with the OPP in Blind River and previous to this was with the Elliot Lake Police Force.

I am certain all Members will join me in sending our deepest sympathy to his wife Sylvestre, his two young sons, his extended family, his colleagues and the communities of Blind River and Elliot Lake as they mourn his loss.”

Hughes thanked the House for indulging her and her constituents before proceeding to deliver her speech.
