The 2023 British Columbia Law Enforcement Memorial (BCLEM) Service is on Sunday, September 24th, 2023 in Victoria, British Columbia.  We hope to fill the parade square with members from all agencies to honour our fallen comrades. This year we will be adding our own RCMP Cst. Shaelyn Yang’s name to the Honour Roll.  This Memorial weekend includes a Memorial Golf Tournament on Friday, Meet and Greet at our host hotel on the Saturday night, a Ride to Remember, a Run to Remember and a Brunch on the Sunday Morning at The Union Club.
