he tragedy in Moncton involving our three fallen RCMP officers has been felt throughout the country.

 

The Upper Fraser Valley Regional Detachment has seen so many acts of kindness and support from the public during this very difficult time. From the heartfelt words for our officers to the flowers, cards and gifts of condolence, your compassion has touched us.

I was humbled that members of our communities took the time from their busy lives to reach out to us. We have felt supported and appreciated through these acts of kindness and for that, we thank you. It was particularly touching to see so many of you wearing red in support of our officers on the day of the regimental funerals. This spoke volumes of your support for us and the families who were directly involved in this tragedy.

The widespread community support we have seen will stay with us in the months and years ahead. The members of the Upper Fraser Valley Regional Detachment have been inspired by these random acts of kindness and sympathy.

On behalf of the members and staff of the Upper Fraser Valley Regional Detachment I wish to thank each and every one of you for your support.

Deanne Burleigh, Superintendent
Upper Fraser Valley Regional Detachment
