    Tosca Banquet Hall & Conference Centre‎
    800 Champlain Avenue, Oshawa, ON L1J 7A6‎



    If the procession leaves Trenton at 2pm, then its roughly 113km away, so i would think a gathering time of between 2-2:30 pm would be ample time to socialize and be prepared for it. Only thing i ask is all attendees behave in keeping with why we are all there.

    so to restate....

    2:30-3:00 on Wednesday would be a good time if they plan to hit Oshawa after 4:30 location is marked on the link via google maps (you can get detailed directions using the directions to link in the map and entering your point of origin).

    For those coming from the west, will be stopping at the Tim Hortons in Woodstock, and the Timmies beside the truck stop in Milton just north of the 401, can be 2 collection points to convoy up.

    I can't make it to this. I will be there in spirit though. My deepest regrets to the family and loved ones.
    To those that serve and to those that have served, this is the ultimate sacrifice.
    God Bless and peace be with you brother.
    WARNING! I am about to do something really fawking STUPID!!!!!!

    Anyone heading there from kingston, belleville, trenton area, maybe we can meet up at rest stop on the highway and travel in convoy? PM me if you are coming from that direction, I can try to co-ordinate something.

    I can't be there, and I just made it to my first Highway of Hero's ceremony for my buddy the other day... some things I noticed that may affect plans

    1. you can't stand near the highway, or park on the off ramps unless you move up a certain distance away from the highway. police will be there to ask you to move. on ramps are off limites aswell, from what I saw, you can't park on them at all, again police were asking people to move.

    2. I was at the Harmony Exit overpass in Oshawa. and right beside the east bound lane is an old dead end road which had a few people parked/standing there already (1 Jeep too)
    you should be able to see it in this link.
    The road can be seen from the bottom of the overpass, towards the 401. If there is a large contingent of vehicles there it would be seen. But it is on the south side of the road, so its not as visible as the north side would be.

    3. traffic behind the procession is rather packed so trying to follow would/could cause problems.

    4. this is a great thing being put together. get there early and feel the pride and warm feelings everyone there shares. vehicles honking their horns at those on the overpasses, cars flicking their lights, truckers blaring the air horns for a few seconds... and then when the families come by. the other day they were hanging their arms out of the windows, waving flags and having the drivers honk/flicker... as terrible as it must be having to be in their position, the support shown by those on the Highway of Hero's must put such pride into their hearts that if only for a second they can be relieved of their sadness.

    good on ya to those who attend and support.
    insert something witty here

    God I'm gonna feel like an ass for suggesting this and not being able to make it out. I should find out by tomorrow night. Sounds like a few people will make it out, which is great to see, I hope it all works out.

    Mayhem, thanks for stepping up and organizing this. If the numbers become big, then there should be 2 or 3 groups at different locations.

    One other suggestion, what about staging it at the end of the precession? I think Toronto Police did this once for a fallen solider when it got to the corner's office. A bunch of Jeeps could be there, along with Marc's Jeep if possible?

    Mighty Mouse and I will be there... just to confirm we are meeting up at the Tosca Banquet Hall right?

    Our deepest condolences go out to Marc's family, he served his country and we are all so proud of him for that!
