Maple Ridge, BC: Maple Ridge Mayor Mike Morden has issued the following statement; “On behalf of Council, and all Maple Ridge citizens, I want to offer my sincere condolences to the people of Nova Scotia who have been impacted by the tragic event that unfolded over the weekend. I want to focus our attention on the victims and remember their accomplishments and contributions to their communities. In these COVID times when we cannot gather together to express grief and console each other, it is important to honour the lives of these neighbours so far away,” said Mayor Morden.
“All flags located at City buildings and the Ridge Meadows RCMP detachment have been lowered
to half-mast in remembrance of Constable Heidi Stevenson who lost her life in the line of duty.
Another police officer is recovering in the hospital and we wish him a speedy recovery. We stand
in solidarity with our RCMP colleagues in their grief at the loss of a comrade. Your community
stands with you in this difficult time,” concluded the Mayor.
