On June 4, 2014, Codiac Regional Royal Canadian Mounted Police members
demonstrated exemplary bravery while responding to a call threatening the
safety of our community.
RCMP constables Douglas James Larche, Dave Joseph Ross and Fabrice
Georges Gevaudan lost their lives. They were all highly devoted to policing,
to the communities they served and to their families. Two other RCMP
members were injured during the incident.
During this dark time, our community came together and collectively
wrapped its arms around the RCMP, the families and each other.
Residents heeded the call to keep their porch lights on to assist police in
their duties. This simple act was echoed around the world and became a
symbol of hope and support.
A community is defined not by a single moment, but by its people and their
response to adversity. Our city's spirit and resiliency shone through then
and continues to do so.
