Vigil Honors Slain Military Members
Tears were shed this morning across the Cariboo, as flowers were laid at Cenotaphs honoring the life of Corporal Nathan Cirillo.
In Williams Lake, veterans and non-veterans alike stood in the rain showing their respect in front of the Cenotaph at City Hall.
Liberal Cariboo-Chilcotin MLA, Donna Barnett, was there.
Barnett shares her reaction when the tragic the death of 24-year-old Corporal Nathan Cirillo was confirmed in Wednesday’s shooting at the National War Monument.
Vivian MacNeil, the daughter of a WWII veteran, was also in attendance.
The vigil also honored the life of Warrant Officer Patrice Vincent who was killed in a targeted hit and run on Monday in Quebec.
