CPAC’s Catherine Clark interviews four special Canadian military veterans who served this country in its time of need.
Nelson Langevin was born in Ottawa’s Lowertown and wanted to join the Navy when he was 16 but was denied when his mother refused to sign his release. On his 17th birthday Nelson joined the Army and shortly thereafter transferred to the Navy. Langevin sailed on the ships that protected the Atlantic convoys. Langevin was in the Landing Craft Mechanized that helped ferry soldiers to the beaches of Dieppe and participated in assaults on the northern coast of Africa and Sicily and Italy in 1943.
Born into political life in Ottawa, Catherine Clark is no stranger to being in the public eye.

Catherine is also a sought-after public speaker and emcee, and writes the “Giving Back” column for Ottawa at Home Magazine, profiling people who are improving the lives of their fellow citizens.
