    Fallen Hero Run, Thursday March 12th. 2:30pm

    Have to admit, im going into this blind...but like alot of you i wish to go and pay my respects in person.

    Is there anyone on this site in the military that could help us out with who to contact for information and whatnots?

    I dont care what day/time/location, ill be there....just going to need some help finding out the specs.

    Who's in?






    Tentative information: The remains of our fallen is anticipated to arrive at 8 Wing, Canadian Forces Base Trenton, on Thursday, 12 March, 2009 at 14h00. The cortege will repatriate the remains of Trooper Diab will arrive at the Toronto boundary at approximately 15h45 - 16h15.






    Very important that if you are one of the few hundred people reading this thread, and intend to participate, that you either post up or send me a private message.

    Picking a suitable venue to show our respect will be based on number of attendees, so let yourself be heard.



    This is now official and the information is posted HERE: http://www.jeepkings.ca/forums/showthread.php?t=88375 pls post up in that thread if you plan to attend

    In for updates. I too would like to pay respects in some form. I will try to co-ordinate my time away from work this week with whatever day is required.

    Contact his church "Our Lady of Lebanon Catholic Church" in Toronto. They would be the ones with all the details other than his family.

    i have been scouring the internet for anything

    all i know is that Marc is on his way home now... Repatriation will be, i am guessing, tomorrow or Wed...

    i wish i could go, but 4 Banger will be taking my jeep for the Highway of Heros Salute.

    A solid JK turnout would be amazing

    From Toronto Emergency Services:

    The remains of our fallen is anticipated to arrive at 8 Wing, Canadian Forces Base Trenton, on Wednesday, 11 March, 2009 at 14h00. The cortege will repatriate the remains of Trooper Diab will arrive at the Toronto boundary at approximately 15h45 - 16h15.

    THIS DATE AND TIME ARE NOT CONFIRMED AS OF YET

    I will be following closely, but i think we may consider starting to organize around this general timeline

    Im in for trailing the procession in Jeep from Trenton to Toronto and maybe after hit the Grill for a drink and for people to discuss/comfort/reflect...

    does anyone else want to do that?

    ** those wanting to do this and coming from the west end could meet at the grill or Clarkson GO (if there is carpooling needs etc) and head up together its 2h eastward. **

    Please post up if you find out more details about the when and where.

    I don't see any issues with lining up on top of the overpasses. But anything else we decide to do, we should consult the family. If anyone knows them, please let us know. Maybe contact Marc's girlfriend?

    If we decide to all meet up at the base (I don't even know if thats allowed), then maybe someone can drive his Jeep over there? Or tow it out there for him?

    I'm just thinking out loud.

    could always meet on as we head east, join the convoy up.

    ^ i can respect that, is there a member of the site that is close to the family that might be able to ask them on our behalf? Im sure they do not wish to be bothered by strangers rite now.

    to my knowledge following after the procession will be just as any traffic that they reopen the roads to so respectfully we could just take the first leg of civilian traffic allowed through while showing our community respect for Marc and support for those Jeepers in the CF.

    or line up along the 401 on the side of the highway before Oshawa with our flags and show our support..
    I say before Oshawa becuase we can park on the side of the road with no issues of blocking traffic

    Rando is having issues posting on this thread, and asked if u post the following:

    i like the procession idea but... i think it would be just as effective if not more to meet up somewhere in LARGE numbers and show our support... IE a large parking lot off the hightway? Brock rd and 401?
    If anyone else is having issues posting in this thread pm me.

    My biggest concern with parking on the side of the 401 in such large numbers is saftey of our members conversing outside of their vehicles while the highway is still open while waiting for the procession, this is VERY dangerous and i would hate to have any incidents.
