Driving down Albert Street this afternoon; saw that the flags on the Legislature were at half-mast; said to myself, “Who’s died?” and then I realised: it meant we’ve lost two Mounties.
A week ago, Constable Marc Bourdages (26) and Constable Robin Cameron (29) responded to a “domestic” call - a family dispute in a home. It turned into a high-speed chase. It ended with both of them taking severe head wounds. According to the RCMP news release, Cst. Cameron died Saturday just before midnight; Cst. Bourdages a little bit after midnight, Sunday morning.
Coming just a year after the loss of four Mounties at Meyerthorpe, Alberta, this hits hard.
My thoughts and prayers are with the families.
