At their annual dinner, held at Pincher Creek's Community Hall, participants in the annual Old-timer's Hockey Tournament paused to honour the sacrifices of the RCMP.  A minute of silence was observed for RCMP Constable David Matthew Wynn of the St. Albert Detachment, who died in the line of duty last week.

Presiding at the ceremony were retired RCMP Sergeant Roxanne Baalim (formerly the commanding officer at Pincher Creek and Brocket detachments) and her husband Galt Baalim.

"We have quite a number of players on teams that are involved in law enforcement," said Galt Baalim.  "Everyone knows a member was lost in St. Albert this week, so we decided we would have a moment of silence for that member."

"If we could just have one moment of silence so we can think about these people that protect us and do good by us."
