Statement from Mayor David Miller on death of police horse Brigadier
Mayor David Miller today expressed his shock and sadness at an incident in the city’s east end that resulted in the death of police horse Brigadier and the injury of Constable Kevin Bradfield.

“Brigadier was a much-loved and irreplaceable member of our Mounted Unit and his loss leaves within the unit a void both emotionally and operationally that will take time to heal and will be difficult to fill.

“The death of any member of the Toronto Police Service in the line of duty is tragic and unfortunate. On behalf of all Torontonians, I extend condolences to all members of the Service and in particular the Mounted Unit where the loss of a friend and colleague is sure to hit hardest.

“I also wish Const. Bradfield a speedy recovery from his injuries.”

A memorial for Brigadier will be held early next week with details to follow.
