Prince Rupert Emergency Responders commemorate Alberta Constable David Wynn

A mid-day procession through the downtown area on Monday allowed members of the Prince Rupert detachment, along with a number of other emergency responders to commemorate the life of slain RCMP Constable David Wynn.

Constable Wynn was murdered in the Alberta community of St. Albert last week, responding to a call in that Alberta city, another constable was injured in that incident.

For the Prince Rupert march, the Mounties were joined by members of the Prince Rupert Fire Service, BC Ambulance and other law enforcement officers in the region, as they marched from the Prince Rupert detachment offices through the streets of the downtown area through the noon hour period.

The City of Prince Rupert posted two photos of the procession to their website on Monday afternoon.
