“I ask Albertans to join me in remembering the Fallen Four – RCMP Constables Anthony Gordon, Leo Johnston, Brock Myrol and Peter Schiemann – who were shot and killed in the line of duty on this day in 2005. Their day began by investigating a rural marijuana grow operation and chop shop; it ended as the worst single-day loss of life for the RCMP in its history.

“As the years pass, it’s more important than ever to honour these men who lost their lives in service to our communities. They were more than four brave and dedicated RCMP constables. They were loved and respected members of their families and communities.

“As we remember the Fallen Four, let us also remember all who have fallen in the line of duty protecting us and the rule of law.

“We must teach the next generation of Albertans about the sacrifices made by the women and men in law enforcement. They put their lives on the line for us every time they put on the uniform.”
