Minister of National Defence Statement on the loss of Master Corporal Alfred Barr


“It is with great sorrow that I learned today of the death of Master Corporal Alfred Barr, one of Canada’s finest Search and Rescue Technicians, during a training event. 

“Having had the privilege to meet with members of the Search and Rescue Community, I appreciate the risks they take, day in and day out, in fair and bad weather, to come to the aid of Canadians in peril. This is exactly what Master Corporal Barr was preparing for today. 

“I wish to offer my most sincere condolences to Master Corporal Barr’s family, friends and colleagues of the Search and Rescue community.”
