First responders united under the Peace Arch
A member of the U.S. Customs and Border Patrol and a Canadian Mountie (above) await the call to march to the Peace Arch Wednesday morning. The annual 9-11 Memorial Ride and Ceremony honours the ‘fallen heroes’ of Sept. 11, 2001 – when hundreds of emergency responders were killed in terrorist attacks in New York and Washington. Two New Westminster firefighters (left) watch as the procession of motorcycles and emergency vehicles weaves through the Douglas border crossing.
