News Release
June 16th, 2014

For Immediate Release

(Ottawa, ON) Member of Parliament for Sydney-Victoria, Mark Eyking Rose in the House of Commons today to recognize five veterans from Cape Breton that were awarded the highest honour by the French government.

“Mr. Speaker, I rise today to recognize five veterans in my riding and members of the Allan MacDonald Memorial Legion Branch 15 in New Waterford.
Stanley Stepaniak, Joseph Meagher, Joseph Petrie, Marshall Desveaux , and Horace Lovell were recently awarded the highest Medal of Honour by the French Government in commemoration of the 70th Anniversary of D-Day and the Battle of Normandy. This honour is bestowed upon all those who helped liberate France in WWII between June 6th & August 31st, 1944.
I had the honour of attending the D-Day celebrations in Normandy earlier this month and witnessed firsthand the out pouring of support from French citizens. I also took part in a ceremony on Juno Beach where French school children give us sand to take home as a memento.

Many of those killed in the invasion were Cape Breton Highlanders. As Canadians and Cape Bretoners we are very proud of what these young men and women did for us and our county.
I ask this House to join me in giving thanks to all those who served. We will be forever grateful to them.”

EYKING QUESTIONS MINISTER ON THE FUTURE OF THE CAPE BRETON RAIL SERVICE

For Immediate Release

(Ottawa, ON) Member of Parliament for Sydney-Victoria, Mark Eyking questioned the Conservative government on the future of the Cape Breton rail service. Eyking asked if the government will assist in keeping the rail service operating as Cape Breton works on the development of the Port of Sydney.

“Mr. Speaker, it has been recently announced that a very important rail service in Cape Breton may be discontinued. The Minister of Transport has been actively involved in rail issues elsewhere in Canada. Will the Minister work with the provincial government to save this vital rail service in Cape Breton?” Eyking asked

“I feel the federal government can also play a significant role in working with the province to maintain the rail lines.” Eyking said after question period

NEWS RELEASE: EYKING IN FRANCE TO COMMEMORATE 70TH ANNIVERSARY OF D-DAY

Posted on June 5, 2014

News Release

June 5th , 2014

For Immediate Release

(Juno Beach, France) Member of Parliament for Sydney-Victoria, Mark Eyking is in France to attend the Ceremony to commemorate the 70th anniversary of D-Day, June 6th 1944. The allied forces invaded the Normandy coast of France with 5,000 ships and more than 24,000 Canadian soldiers participating. 900 Canadians were killed or injured in the D-Day operation.

“It is very emotional being here with our veterans some of whom I spoke with and told me this is their first time returning to Juno Beach since 1944. I am very proud to be here with our veterans as we see the out pouring of support from the French citizens. Today we made our way down to the beach and we were greeted by French school children that lined up to give us sand from Juno Beach to take home.

A couple of stops that really hit home for me were Ardenne Abbey which is where 27 Canadian prisoners were executed by Hitler’s 12th S.S. division. Many of those killed were Cape Breton Highlanders. The other stop that hit home was when we went to the grave site where the fallen soldiers are buried and seeing so many form Cape Breton.

It’s amazing to sit and listen to these veterans, as Canadians and Cape Bretoners we should be very proud of what these young men and women did for us and our county. Canada is being recognized for its efforts with the streets of Normandy lined with Canadian Flags.” Eyking said while in Normandy for the 70th D-Day ceremony.
