    Repatriation of the Late Sgt Andrew Joseph Doiron

    As you are aware, Canada lost another of her heroes, Sergeant Andrew Joseph Doironn, a member of the Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry (PPCLI), who was attached to the Canadian Special Operations Regiment (CSOR) while serving in Iraq.

    The repatriation of the Late Sgt Doiron will take place on Tuesday, 10 March, 2015, arriving at Canadian Forces Base Trenton at 15h40. The cortege will arrive at the Ontario Coroners Office in Toronto at approximately 18h15.


    Please be aware that this is the new Coroners Office located at 25 Morton Shulman Avenue (Keele St & Wilson Av area).

    The cortege WILL NOT be travelling down the Don Valley Parkway as in previous years.



    The cortege will enter the grounds from the ramp off of the 401 leading to the south end of the Coroner's Office, not north on Keele, then west on Wilson to south on Morton Shulman Ave.


    Due to the layout of the new location, there is limited parking/staging for vehicles along the roadways. The OPP will be co-ordinating those groups that wish to attend to pay homage to our fallen.

    Traditional coverage on Toronto bridges will continue to be co-ordinated by the EMDs of the CACC as operational count permits.
