Canadian Cancer Society statement about death of Cst. John Davidson

07 November 2017

Vancouver -

We are saddened to learn that one of our Cops for Cancer Tour de Valley riders was killed while on duty with the Abbotsford Police Department.

Without a doubt, this is tragic news. We share in the grief felt across Canada for Constable Davidson, whose life was taken while protecting the community he loved.

We are sending our condolences and thoughts to all who knew and loved Constable Davidson, particularly his wife and three children. We are deeply sorry for their loss.

We will be working with our Tour de Valley team to find an appropriate way to honour Constable Davidson’s legacy in our 2018 Tour. In the meantime, we will mourn the loss of an individual who graciously gave his time and energy to make life better for children with cancer and to fund life-saving research into childhood cancer.
