Hundreds of Canadians line the streets to pay tribute to ex-soldier who joined Kurdish YPG in Syria and died fighting ISIS, reported Daily Mail.
The body of a volunteer Canadian fighter who was killed in Syria was returned back to his hometown in southern Ontario.
During the repatriation, a roadside memorial was held for John Robert Gallagher, 32, a former Canadian soldier who died while fighting against the Islamic State earlier this month, CBC News reported.
Hundreds including fire-fighters, the local police force and supporters came out to pay their respects, as they lined overpasses while a hearse carrying Gallagher’s casket made its way along a major highway in Ontario known as the Highway of Heroes.
