Cirillo Anniversary

Matt Galloway spoke with Ron Foxcroft is the honorary colonel of the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders of Canada regiment. But first, yesterday, a dog park in Ancaster was renamed the Nathan Cirillo Leash-Free Park. There was a ceremony attended by Nathan's family, and local dog-owners.
