Political leaders in Ottawa are paying tribute today to the 31-year-old police officer who was stabbed to death in Burnaby.
The House of Commons held a moment of silence to honour Constable Shaelyn Yang, who was partnered with a city employee when an altercation broke out at a homeless camp yesterday.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says mental health supports need to be stepped up so police are not sole providers for such outreach in many situations.
Opposition leader Pierre Poilievre said Yang's death was among a series of killings of police that were part of a ``larger violent crime wave'' and asked Trudeau what he would do to end it.
