Traffic officers escort Sgt. Andrew Doiron funeral on Saturday


On Saturday March 14th the Ottawa Police Traffic Enforcement and Escort Unit will have the honour of escorting Sgt. Andrew Doiron from the Canadian Forces. This will create rolling road closures.

The traffic escort will begin at 10:30am from the Beechwood National Cemetery of Canada and continue to St-Patrick Street, then onto Sussex Drive arriving at the Notre-Dame Basilica of Ottawa for the 11:00am funeral.

After the funeral ceremony, the traffic escort will leave the Basilica at approx. 12:15pm going from Sussex Drive to Murray Street, then to St-Patrick Street and continuing toward Beechwood Avenue for the Beechwood Cemetery.

Ottawa Police will be ensuring traffic safety with rolling road closures at key intersections.

You can honour our Canadian Hero by showing your respect along this route.  #LestWeForget
