SURREY (NEWS 1130) – Thursday morning will be a sombre one for many first responders.
A number of members are set to take part in a memorial motorcade in Surrey to honour the victims of the mass killing in Nova Scotia, two weekends ago. Among those being honoured is RCMP Constable Heidi Stevenson, who died in the line of duty.
Road closures are planned starting at 10:15 a.m.
The route begins at the Guildford Town Centre parking lot, finishing at RCMP headquarters on Green Timbers Way around 10:30 a.m.
The RCMP says in a release the motorcade will travel along 150 Street, 100 Avenue, and 140 Street before arriving on Green Timbers Way.
“Without stopping, the motorcade will drive past the BC RCMP memorial wall in recognition of fallen police officers,” the force says.
Twenty-two people were killed in the attack that began on April 18 in a small coastal community in Nova Scotia. The gunman’s hours-long rampage stretched into Sunday morning, when he encountered police officers, by chance, at a gas station and was killed.
