    Thousands of police will attend memorial

    CanWest News Service March 10, 2005

    Thousands of police officers across North America will pay their respects today to four of their own who were killed in the line of duty last week in Alberta.

    From small tributes in community halls to a massive memorial in Edmonton, RCMP officials say it's important for their members to mourn alongside the families of the four junior constables who were gunned down on a rural property.

    Of the 11,000 people who are expected to attend today's service at the University of Alberta, about half will be RCMP officers, estimates Fraser. Hundreds of regional police -- some from as far away as St. Paul, Minn. -- as well as emergency medical technicians and firefighters are also expected to attend.

    Prime Minister Paul Martin will join Gov. Gen. Adrienne Clarkson and Alberta Premier Ralph Klein in speaking at the event, which is to honour RCMP constables Peter Schiemann, 25, Anthony Gordon, 28, Leo Johnston, 32, and Brock Myrol, 29. The officers were shot last Thursday while conducting an investigation at a farm near Mayerthorpe, Alta., about 130 kilometres northwest of Edmonton. The gunman, James Roszko, then turned his weapon on himself.

    The streets surrounding the university will be flooded with scarlet at noon Pacific time as thousands of uniformed Mounties march to the Butterdome, a large recreation facility usually reserved for sporting events, said Jacqueline Varga, the facility's associate director of events. CBC will broadcast the event.
