‘Highway of Heroes’ bears slain Canadian soldier home

HAMILTON Ontario (Reuters) – The body of a Canadian soldier shot dead while guarding the country’s war memorial in Ottawa returned to his hometown on Friday, after thousands of his countrymen paid tribute along the nation’s “Highway of Heroes.”

Crowds of people lined much of the roughly 500-km (310-mile) route along Lake Ontario while a black hearse accompanied by dozens of police vehicles bore the slain soldier, Corporal Nathan Cirillo, 24, back to Hamilton, Ontario.
