The map we would like to feature this week it is rather sad. The map shows the route of a funeral procession honoring fallen police officer Cst. Eric Czapnik. Here is an excerpt from the article published on OttawaCitizen.com:

Thousands of police officers will march in honour of Ottawa police officer Cst. Ireneusz “Eric” Czapnik. Roads along the route will be closed off for the procession. This map will be updated with photos taken along the procession route.

Road closures are marked in red and procession route is marked in green.
