(May 16, 2010) The family of Private Kevin McKay, recently killed in Afghanistan, greet a long line of firefighters on Grenville St. in downtown Toronto during a Repatriation ceremony. Private McKay’s father Fred was a Toronto firefighter captain. Photographers note: I found myself both very sad, and yet proud to be Canadian at Repatriation ceremony. To the McKay family: I’m very sorry for your loss and thank you dearly for your families commitment to public service.
