Sapper Brian Collier was killed in Afghanistan while serving with 2 CER on 20 July 2010. Bradford's hometown hero was honoured last week at the Highway of Heroes tree-planting event in Whitby, Ontario. 

Seven years ago the Highway of Heroes Tree Campaign, a national charity, set out with a goal to plant two million trees to honour every Canadian who served in the country’s Armed Forces and the 117,000 who paid the ultimate sacrifice.
