In Loving Memory of
Douglas Hewson Christie
April 24, 1946 to March 11, 2013
The Funeral Mass for Canada's greatest freedom fighter was held at the Victoria Cathedral in downtown Victoria. Hundreds of people from across Canada and the United States came to pay their respects.
In keeping with Doug's proud Scottish tradition, a bagpiper filled the air while the Christie family carried the coffin into the church.
Caderyn Christie gave a very thoughtful and tear-jerking Eulogy of his father.
The Funeral Mass was officiated by Reverend Fr. Lucien Larre, who gave a rousing memorial of Doug Christie and for freedom of speech in Canada.
After the funeral mass, mourners attended a memorial service for Doug.
Caderyn Christie and Scott Zubko remember Doug Christie.
