Deepest Condolences to South Simcoe Policing Community

The CPCA Leadership Team, on behalf of all the CPCA chaplains, offer our deepest condolences to the families and peers of South Simcoe PS slain officers CST. Morgan Russell and CST Devon Northrup.

In the aftermath of this horrific tragedy, our hearts grieve, and our collective prayers go out to the officers' families and friends. These men courageously answered the call, as do countless peacekeepers across our nation, many times a day. CST Northrup and CST Russell bravely sacrificed themselves to face and defeat a threat to their community; their ultimate sacrifice will not be forgotten! We lift up their families and colleagues in prayer including the family of the assailant. We also pray for strength and resiliency for all those coming alongside the bereaved to provide care and counsel including the police chaplains (Barrie PS Chaplain Craig Head and others), employee wellness teams/peer support groups, counsellors, victim service units, police service psychologists and psychiatrists. May there be strength and unity across all teams of those serving everyone affected by this immense loss within this community.
