Honouring the three Mounties slain on June 4, thousands of RCMP officers and community members gathered at a Moncton stadium for the regimental funeral for Constables Fabrice Gévaudan, David Ross and Douglas Larche.
In a sea of red, dark green, and navy, officers stood in silence as the three flag-draped caskets were carried to the front of the coliseum. See our coverage of the event here.
