RCMP statement regarding the Moncton Canada Labour Code verdict

September 29, 2017
Ottawa, Ontario

Statement

The RCMP respects the judicial process, and will review the decision and consider next steps.

The health and safety of our employees continues to be the top priority of the RCMP. Our work continues with the implementation of the MacNeil Recommendations to further the safety of members on the job.

Today's verdict will not change the tragic reality that on June 4, 2014, we lost three friends and colleagues — and nearly lost more — to the actions of one man.

The murders of constables Doug Larche, Dave Ross and Fabrice Gevaudan continue to affect us all, none more than the friends, family and colleagues of our fallen and injured members. Our thoughts remain with them.

The RCMP will not be commenting further at this time.
