Halifax Homecoming Ceremony for Capt. Jennifer Casey

In Halifax, a homecoming ceremony is held for Capt. Jennifer Casey, who was killed in the May 17 crash of a Canadian Forces Snowbirds aircraft in Kamloops, B.C. The Snowbirds had been deployed in a cross-country tour to boost morale of Canadians and to pay tribute to frontline workers during the COVID-19 (coronavirus disease) pandemic. Capt. Casey was a public affairs officer with the Snowbirds team and was originally from Halifax. Governor General Julie Payette and Defence Minister Harjit Sajjan are among those in attendance at the ceremony. (May 24, 2020)
