June 4 Shooting Victim Mounties Thank Canadians for Support

The two Mounties injured during the deadly shooting rampage in Moncton, NB, last month have openly acknowledged the support received from Canadians and thanked for remembering them in their thoughts and prayers as they recover. Separate statements were issued by Constables Darlene Goguen and Eric Dubois on Thursday. Apart from the two seriously injured, the June 4 incident also resulted in death of three of their colleagues, namely constables Dave Ross, Douglas Larche and Fabrice Gevaudan.

According to a statement issued by Constable Goguen, she mentioned that “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.” She quickly added that “without these prayers, the road to recovery would not have been possible.” Goguen stressed to have chosen her career with the RCMP and “will continue to pursue it with pride.”

On the other hand, Constable Dubois also thanked Moncton residents for their support, alleging that “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.” He mentioned to have received letters from people across Canada and the US. Dubois added that “it was truly appreciated, so good for my morale and helped immensely with the healing process.”
