This was a day to pay respects to three fallen Codiac RCMP officers in Greater Moncton.

A regimental funeral was held at the Moncton Coliseum this afternoon to accommodate the approximately 7,000 law enforcement officers who arrived in the city along with dignitaries such as Prime Minister Stephen Harper.

At least 11 other remote sites were set up in the city to allow the general public to view the funeral.

The ceremony was truly moving and is allowing the community to heal after a horrible tragedy.

This evening, a rainbow appeared over the city – a beautiful sight to cap a sombre day.
