MONCTON – Two RCMP Constables injured in the gun attack that killed three of their colleagues in Moncton on June 4 have released statements, thanking the public for their support.

RCMP Constables Darlene Goguen and Eric Dubois are recovering well from their injuries after the events of June 4. Both of them took the time Thursday to reach out and offer thanks for all the support they’ve received.

“I received so much positive energy from all of you through comforting thoughts and notes of well-being that it didn’t take long for me to heal from my injuries; this sounds incredible but is the truth,” said Cst. Eric Dubois.

Constable Darlene Goguen writes:

“I would like everyone to know that I am recovering well from my injuries. I wish to express my deepest gratitude for the support, encouragement, generosity, and the many prayers that were received from around the world in the days and weeks that followed. Without these prayers, the road to recovery would not have been possible.

“My career in the Royal Canadian Mounted Police was a chosen one, and I will continue to pursue it with pride.”
