The McBride RCMP and McBride District Fire Department marched silently down Main Street in honour of those impacted by the events of 9/11. The day marked the 20th anniversary of the historic day when members of the Al Quaeda terrorist group hijacked planes and flew them into US targets, including the World Trade Centre twin towers in New York. 3,000 people died that day, including more than 400 First Responders.

“It’s important for us to participate in the 9/11 march to bring attention to the event that devastated so many families 20 years ago,” said Cpl Colin Bissell, McBride RCMP. “It’s how we can honour and remember, not only the first responders, but all the people who perished in the attacks and the families that have suffered with the losses from that day.”/ CAPTION ANDREA ARNOLD & LAURA KEIL, PHOTOS SANDRA JAMES
