RCMP Memorial

Posted by
Eric Cousineau (Sherwood Park, Canada) on 28 February 2010 in Miscellaneous and Portfolio.

On March 3, 2005, four RCMP officers were fatally shot during an operation to recover stolen property and investigate a possible marijuana grow-op in Rochfort Bridge, Alberta. Shooter Jim Roszko, 46, then killed himself. It was the single worst multiple killing of RCMP officers since the Northwest Rebellion.

I don't think of myself as a role model. I do try to live in a compassionate, considerate and positive way. The only advice I can offer is to find what you love to do, find the joy in it, and express yourself through your passion.

Good evening Eric,
It is a sad story that you tell us. This fact is unknown to me. I'm sorry, what happened then.
The reproduction of the commemorative plaque to give you color, brilliant against.
I wish you a pleasant evening. Dear greetings Christel
