Dear Families of the Fallen, Police Service Members, Special Guests, and members of the public

 

Re: 2020 Ontario Police Memorial Ceremony Of Remembrance

 

We are writing to inform you of the very difficult decision that the 2020 Ontario Police Memorial's Ceremony of Remembrance, scheduled for Sunday May 3rd will be cancelled due to the COVID-19 virus. We were hopeful that we would be able to host this important Memorial to honour our fallen officers and their families, however due to the directives coming from the Chief Medical Officer of Canada to avoid any large public gatherings, and the recent declaration of a state of emergency by Premier Doug Ford, we have taken the very difficult step to cancel this year's Ceremony. This decision was made in consultation with our member organizations, family members, and most importantly, survivors of those tragically lost in the line of duty.

 

Though we are disappointed, it is essential to protect the health and wellbeing of the thousand plus members of our law enforcement family who attend this Memorial at Queen's Park every year, as well as the public who support it. The OPMF Board wants to thank the many members who attend this Memorial every year to honour our brave men and women that have made the ultimate sacrifice by protecting our communities.

 

We appreciate your understanding in this very challenging time as we all navigate this rapidly evolving situation. We encourage you all to continue to look out for each other and to continue honouring those we have lost. They will always remain #heroesinlife

 

Respectfully,


Mike Adair
President
