This editorial shoot was commissioned by the New Brunswick Department of Public Safety. It's purpose was to provide photographic documentation of the speech given by the Hon. Robert Trevors, the NB Minister of Public Safety, during the 2011 International Association of Fire Fighters Day of Remembrance. I was also tasked with providing photos of the event itself as well as Mr. Trevor's interactions with other guests and the public.
The 2011 IAFF Day of Remembrance coincided with the tenth anniversary of the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center. Moncton, where this event was held, hosted hundreds of airline passengers stranded on 11 September 2001 when the United States closed its airspace following the attacks.
