Statement on the Tragic Loss of Constable Vu Pham

On behalf of the Corporation of the Township of North Huron Council and staff, I wish to express our deepest condolences to Heather Pham, her children and their extended family on the tragic loss of Vu. 

I also wish to offer our condolences to Constable Pham's friends, as well as, his colleagues with the Huron Detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police.  Constable Pham's  leadership, not only as a police officer with the O.P.P., but also through his dedication and involvement with numerous community groups has made Huron County and more particularly Wingham a safer and more enriched community. 

Vu's commitment and dedication to his community speaks volumes of the positive impact that one person can make.  His heroic actions will live on as an example to all of us of the risks that the men and women in uniform take on a daily basis regardless of where they work to protect us all.

Please know that the thoughts, prayers and support of the entire community are with Vu's family, friends and colleagues during this difficult time.

Neil Vincent
Township of North Huron
