Bagpipes played as members of the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders regiment placed the flag-draped casket of Corporal Nathan Cirillo into a hearse early this afternoon before the motorcade began the sombre ride to his hometown.


Hundreds are lining the route that will take the fallen soldier’s hearse along the 401, 404, 407 into Hamilton.

They’re wearing red, holding Canadian flags.

The motorcade’s expected to arrive early evening.

Funeral arrangements have been announced for Cpl. Cirillo, who was gunned down Wednesday at the National War Memorial in Ottawa.
