Halifax motorcade to honour Capt. Jennifer Casey on Sunday

Capt. Jennifer Casey is returning to her home city of Halifax today and there will be a motorcade in her honour from the airport to the funeral home.

The Canadian Forces Snowbirds public affairs officer and former journalist died on May 17 when the aircraft she was in crashed after takeoff in Kamloops, B.C.

That final flight was part of the Snowbirds’ cross-country tour to recognize the efforts of Canadians in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic.

CBC News will carry a live stream of the procession, which starts at 5 p.m. AT.

At the request of Casey’s family, spectators are asked to respect physical distancing measures in relation to COVID-19. They’re also encouraging people to wear the colours of the Snowbirds — red and white — in Casey’s honour.

Governor General Julie Payette will also attend the homecoming ceremony at the Halifax airport on Sunday, according to a release from her office.
