“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 military funeral for Cpl. Nathan Cirillo, fatally shot while on duty at Ottawa’s National War Memorial last week, took place in his hometown of Hamilton Tuesday.

The funeral of Warrant Officer Patrice Vincent will take place on November 1, 2014, at the Longueuil Cathedral.
