A tribute after the recent passing of Niagara Regional Police Association president Cliff Priest saw Niagara Falls lit up in blue from 9:30 to 9:45 pm on Friday (July 23) night.
While the cause of his death is still unreleased, the condolences poured in from police associations across the province.
“Barrie Police Association would like to offer our condolences to the family, friends and colleagues of Cliff Priest @NRPA1969. Cliff was one of the greatest advocates for police associations. His experience and love for what he did will be greatly missed!! Rest In Peace Cliff!” tweeted John Brooks, the president of the Barrie Police Association.
The Police Association of Ontario sent its support, as well.
They tweeted, “A beautiful tribute will be held tonight for @NRPA1969 President Cliff Priest. Long-serving association President, past @PoliceAssocON Board Director, active Committee member and much more. He will be deeply missed. We extend our support to his family, friends and colleagues.”
Cliff Priest would be proud to know his influence in policing was instrumental in changing the colour of Niagara Falls to blue if only for a little while. #BackTheBlue RIP President Priest pic.twitter.com/gPNwxtIwtM
