Commemorating Constable Ezio Faraone

My Conservative MP friend Michael Cooper and I were honoured to attend a moving ceremony to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the tragic death in the line of duty of Edmonton Police Service Const. Ezio Faraone. Ezio was just 33 years old when he was killed June 25,1990 responding to an armed robbery. Both of the men involved in his murder were sent to prison. The touching ceremony put on by the Edmonton Police Association at a civic park named for the constable, was well-attended. I remember the day very well because I was working as a journalist at the Edmonton Sun covering the horrific event. RIP Ezio and thanks to all the good men and women who serve and protect us.
