Supporters pay tribute as the body of Cpl. Nathan Cirillo is transported in a hearse from Ottawa to Hamilton, along the Highway of Heroes in Port Hope, Ont., on Friday. The road is designated the Highway of Heroes because it is often traveled by funeral convoys for fallen Canadian Forces personnel from a major military base in Trenton to the coroner's office in Toronto.
The 25-year-old reservist was gunned down as he stood ceremonial guard at the National War Memorial in Ottawa on Wednesday. After killing Cirillo the gunman stormed the main parliament building, terrorizing the public and politicians, before being shot dead.
Cirillo, who was part of the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders Regiment, was remembered by relatives as a "wonderful young man." The gunman, who was also later shot dead, was identified as Michael Joseph Hall, 32, an Islam convert who used the name Michael Zehaf-Bibeau.
