Soldier felt democracy for Afghans was a goal that was worth the risks


Nuttall was the leader of 12 Platoon, 1st Battalion Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry. 
He was at the front of the patrol. The explosion ended his life. He was just 30 years old.

Nuttall had been a resident of Saanich South, and his parents continue to live here. Although I didn't know him or his family, I went to the funeral to offer my condolences as the MLA of their constituency.
