Statement regarding the events of August 10th

This community mourns for everyone impacted by today’s unspeakable tragedy.

We will unconditionally support the families of the fallen. We will lend our unwavering support the surviving sisters and brothers of the Fredericton Police Force. They, have the unthinkable task of keeping our community safe while grieving the loss of colleagues and friends in the days and months ahead. This will be no easy task.

“We have been blessed to live in a community that is unaccustomed to such violence. During times like this, we are thankful for the dedication and professionalism of our first responders, who put themselves in peril for the community.

“The two police officers who were killed this morning, died serving our community. There is no greater measure of courage and devotion to duty and their sacrifice will never be forgotten.”

“On behalf of a grieving community, we offer our unwavering support and gratitude to our first responders and their families. We will do what is required to support each other and we will grow stronger together.”

Sincerely,

Matt DeCourcey
