Statement by the Honourable Vic Toews, Minister of Public Safety, on the Death of RCMP Constable Chelsey Alice Robinson

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - June 21, 2010) - "I was deeply saddened to learn of the death of Constable Chelsey Alice Robinson, who was tragically killed in a motor vehicle accident this morning while on duty patrolling for an impaired driver. I have been informed by the RCMP that the accident occurred on Highway 16 and Range Road 15 near Stony Plain.

On behalf of the Government and all Canadians, I wish to extend my sympathies to her family, friends and colleagues. This is a heartbreaking reminder of the conditions faced daily by the men and women of the RCMP, as they selflessly risk their safety to protect others. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family of Constable Robinson as they deal with this tragic and untimely loss."
