M.P. Cathy McLeod takes part in the inauguration of the Memorial to Fallen Diplomats in Ottawa on Sept. 20. Terrorists assassinated Colonel Atilla Altikat, a Turkish military attaché, on Aug. 27, 1982, on the spot the monument now occupies. The monument is a gift to Canada from the people of Turkey and is dedicated to all diplomats and public servants around the world who lost their lives in the service of their country. McLeod attended the ceremony in her role as vice-president to the Canada-Turkey Friendship Group.
