Police officers in Montreal, Terrebonne pay tribute to hospital workers

Police officers in Terrebonne and Montreal are saluting frontline workers during the COVID-19 crisis in their own way.

Once their shift was done on Thursday, Terrebonne police officers drove by the Pierre-Le Gardeur Hospital in a caravan.

“We had warned the hospital a lot of police cars would be driving by so they didn’t worry, we just didn’t tell them why,” said Terrebonne police spokesperson Captain Joël Lamarche.

They lined up on the street –respecting social distancing measures– in front of the emergency room and displayed five letters spelling ‘MERCI’ — which is ‘thank you’ in French.

Lamarche said they were inspired by seeing people cheering for frontline workers from their balconies in Europe.
