Local residents gathered on the 401 overpass at Edward Street to pay respects to Corporal Nathan Cirillo Friday. Overpasses were packed with people holding Canadian flags all the way from the 416 at Hunt Club Road to each and every overpass along Hwy 401 as people paid tribute to the young man gunned down at the National War Memorial during a terrorist attack in Ottawa Wednesday. Cirillo’s funeral took place Tuesday morning.
