Message From His Excellency the Right Honourable David Johnston, Governor General and Commander-in-Chief of Canada, on the Death of Bombardier Karl Manning

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - May 28, 2011) - My wife, Sharon, and I were saddened to hear of the death of Bombardier Karl Manning in Afghanistan, who was a member of the 1er Royal 22e Régiment Battle Group, based in Valcartier, Quebec.

The men and women of the Canadian Forces have earned the respect and admiration of all Canadians for the extraordinary work they do often under very difficult circumstances. But even as we mourn, we know that we will stand united and build a better life for the Afghani people.

We wish to send our deepest condolences to the family, friends and colleagues of Bombardier Manning who have suffered an unimaginable loss. Our thoughts are with you.

David Johnston
