A Northern Ontario MP wants Canadians who fought in the Cold War to be recognized for their effort.   So New Democrat Carol Hughes is re-introducing her Private Member’s Bill that does just that.  Hughes, who represents Algoma Manitoulin Kapuskasing, says her Bill would create a medal that is wide reaching.

In addition to recognizing military people, the medal would also be awarded to police members, emergency measures and civilian organizations.   The medal would be formally called the Defense of Canada Medal.  The Cold War ran from 1946 to 1989.
