The RCMP wishes to thank the public for their outpouring of support and patience these past two weeks as we honoured our colleague and friend Constable Shaelyn Yang who was killed in the line of duty on October 18, 2022 in Burnaby, British Columbia.

We are grateful to our policing partners for the kindness they’ve shown and assistance they provided to Burnaby Detachment by contributing officers to take shifts so that Cst. Yang’s colleagues could manage in the immediate aftermath of the incident, and to attend the Regimental Funeral on Nov. 2.

We would like to thank the over 4,500 people, who attended Cst. Yang’s funeral. And many thanks to people who heard our call to wear red on Wednesday in support of Cst. Yang.

If you missed the live coverage of the Regimental Funeral, it is available at RCMPTV (YouTube).
