Watch: Police, other emergency responders honour fallen soldiers
MONTREAL — Representatives from a variety of police and other emergency services drove in a cortège from Longueuil to St-Hubert to pay tribute to fallen soldiers Patrice Vincent and Nathan Cirillo on Tuesday.
The procession, which ended at the 438 Tactical Helicopter Squadron in CFB St-Hubert, included police officers from the Longueuil and Montreal police, as well as members of the Sûreté du Québec, Canada Border Services and firefighters from Quebec City.
“This morning was an important demonstration for us,” said Montreal police spokesperson Yann Lafrenière.
“Just to show the support to our fellow military… it will be a hard week for them, but they’re not by themselves.”
The funeral of Warrant Officer Patrice Vincent will take place on November 1, 2014, at the Longueuil Cathedral.
