“Members from the WFPS Executive team and members from UFFW Local 867 are ensuring that the Captain and his family are fully supported,” he said in a statement provided to CBC.

“I would like to thank the WFPS crews and Communications staff who were instrumental in ensuring their fellow WFPS member received the best care possible.”
