THUNDER BAY -- The funeral service for the slain Moncton RCMP officers is a time to heal for members of law enforcement from across the country.

The local RCMP detachment commander said no matter the badge, police officers are a family.

“It’s a way of dealing with the loss of the members of the RCMP. It’s a way of grieving, it’s a different way of healing,” Staff Sgt. Normand Roy said. “Collectively we have a strong bond between all agencies and emergency services.”

The live feed of the Moncton ceremony will be streamed at the Harbourview Funeral Home on Tuesday. Three books of condolences will be available for members of the public to sign.

Officers from across the country have gathered in the New Brunswick town to observe the service and share their respects, similar to last month’s police funeral for Thunder Bay Police Service Const. Joseph Prevett.

Law enforcement agencies have received an outpouring of support and gratitude in the wake of the tragedy, and that has been no different in the city.

The local detachment has received many calls and staff arriving Monday morning found a letter of condolence from the community. Roy said members have received support from family and friends.

People will begin gathering at the funeral home for 11:30 a.m. with the actual ceremony beginning live from Moncton at noon.
