Pallbearers carried Cpl. Paul Voisine’s casket into St. Paul’s Anglican Church Thursday morning.
More than 100 Mounties from Island detachments and other areas Voisine served were joined by officers from Island and Lower Mainland municipal police departments and Nanaimo Fire Rescue firefighters in a march through downtown to the funeral ceremony.
Voisine, 50, who was a road supervisor at Nanaimo RCMP detachment, died last week while scuba diving with friends off Snake Island. He served with the RCMP more than 30 years.
