The City of Moncton has provided details regarding Tuesday’s scheduled regimental funeral to honour three RCMP officers who were killed last week.
The service, which is scheduled to take place Tuesday at 1 p.m., will be held at the Moncton Coliseum.
Friday evening, hundreds attended a candlelight vigil outside Codiac RCMP headquarters, laying flowers on the steps of the building in memory of Const. Dave Ross, Const. Fabrice Gevaudan and Const. Douglas Larche.
Earlier on Friday, 24-year-old Justin Bourque appeared in court, charged with three counts of first-degree murder and two counts of attempted murder.
To accommodate the funeral service on Tuesday, Codiac Transpo transit service will be suspended for the entire day.
In addition, several roads near the Coliseum will be closed on Tuesday:
