Moncton to neighbours: 'Thank you! Merci!'

On anniversary of shooting rampage, Codiac RCMP extend thanks on behalf of the community

MONCTON, N.B. — New Brunswick RCMP have released a YouTube video thanking the public for its support following a shooting rampage that killed three officers one year ago today in Moncton.

The video features members of the force and support staff holding personalized “Thank You” signs to the people of Moncton, Dieppe and Riverview.

The widows of slain Constables David Ross, Fabrice Gevaudan and Doug Larche also take part in the video, along with two officers injured in the attack, Constables Eric Dubois and Darlene Goguen.

The video says the Moncton Codiac detachment was devastated by the loss of their colleagues and friends and it was the public that looked after the force in its “darkest days.”

Justin Bourque was sentenced to life in prison with no chance of parole for 75 years after pleading guilty to the killings.
