It was a sea of red in Moncton, New Brunswick today as thousands of people came out to the funeral of three RCMP members recently shot and killed in the line of duty. Closer to home, Comox Valley RCMP Constable Don Sinclair says local residents have shown their support for local members and sent in their condolences.

Constable Sinclair says there is no doubt about it–policing can be a very dangerous and volatile profession.

Twenty-seven-year-old Justin Bourque has been charged with three counts of first degree murder, and two counts of attempted murder.
