PHOTOS & VIDEO: Motorcade carrying Const. John Davidson arrives in Abbotsford

Hundreds gathered on Abbotsford overpasses to pay tribute to fallen officer.

The motorcade carrying the body of Const. John Davidson from Vancouver General Hospital to Abbotsford has arrived in Abbotsford.

The motorcade proceeded along Highway 1. Hundreds of people – including police, ambulance and fire personnel – gathered at overpasses along the route and in Abbotsford.

Davidson’s family travelled in the motorcade from VGH, then went ahead and watched the procession from atop a firetruck on the McCallum Road overpass.

At Clearbrook Road, firefighters lifted a Canadian flag above the overpass.

Earlier today, it was announced that Davidson’s full police-honours funeral will be held Nov. 19 at Abbotsford Centre. More details are expected to be released later.
