Cst. Eric Dubois and myself were also injured on that tragic day. I would like everyone to know that I am recovering well from my injuries. I wish to express my deepest gratitude for the support, encouragement, generosity, and the many prayers that were received from around the world in the days and weeks that followed.

I would like to say thank you to everyone in the Greater Moncton area for their support and collaboration since the beginning of the shooting incident of June 4. I received so much positive energy from all of you through comforting thoughts and notes of well-being that it didn’t take long for me to heal from my injuries; this sounds incredible but is the truth.

I would also like to thank all of the personnel of Moncton Hospital for their professionalism and compassion at the time of the incident which was reflected in the care they provided and the top quality service I received.

Thanks to all of those people from across Canada and the United States that took the time to write something to me. It was truly appreciated, so good for my morale and helped immensely with the healing process.

Finally, a special thanks to the RCMP and my colleagues for all they have done for me, during and following this incident. We are a big family and I appreciate being a part of it. I would like to say more but if you take the time to feel the energy that comes with these words, you will understand the heartfelt gratitude that I feel.

I am proud to be a member of a great organization such as the RCMP which is built on a tradition to serve the community and all Canadians.

~ Cst. Eric Dubois
