"With the eyes of the nation upon us today, I want to publicly say how incredibly proud I am of each and every one of you. I only wish...I only wish that I could have told Doug, Dave and Fabrice that in person. I will never torget that, nor will we. Const. Gevaudan, Const. Ross, Const. Larche. To your post, dismissed."
Constables Fabrice Georges Gevaudan, Douglas James Larche and Dave Joseph Ross were "incredible" members of the RCMP, says Roger Brown, commanding officer for RCMP's "J" Division in New Brunswick.
"They gave their lives protecting the beautiful city of Moncton, they did not hesitate to put themselves in harm's way for the safety of others, and that is why they were incredible."
