Podium - Rick Hillier


On May 24th, 2007, in Toronto, Canada's top military commander, General Rick Hillier, Chief of the Defence Staff, was the guest speaker at The Canadian Press annual dinner.

In his speech Mr. Hillier said that Afghanistan is a tough mission for the Canadian troops who are far from home doing a sometimes lonely and frightening job with high costs. The Chief of the Defence Staff also said that signs from home of support for the troops can result in a big boost in morale for the soldiers who put their lives on the line every day.
