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.”
