The body of Cpl Nathan Cirillo was transported home to Hamilton along the Highway of Heroes today. Crowds lined the route to honour Nathan.
Memorials have sprung up at the National War Memorial, the scene of the shooting of Cpl Cirillo, as well as the gates of the John Weir Foote Armoury, the home of the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders of Canada in Hamilton, and Nathan’s home as his beloved dogs watch.
The Guard of Honour returned to the National War Memorial today in a service attended by the Prime Minister and members of the military. The flag beside the Memorial remains at half mast as many flags across the country.
