According to the DND website he arrives home tomorrow at 1400 hrs in Trenton. I just flew in to TO from Edmonton this evening for Xmas and fully plan on being on a overpass of the Highway of Heroes tomorrow afternoon. Godspeed Cpl Steve Martin.

Rest In Peace Cpl. Martin  :salute:

It looks like the repatriation has been delayed because of the weather in Europe. It is tentatively rescheduled for 22 Dec 2010 @ 14:00, but will be confirmed later today by DND.

If anyone else is in Whitby, I will be heading to the Brock Street overpass once the details are confirmed.

Severe winter weather in Europe delays repatriation of Canadian soldier
By: The Canadian Press 21/12/2010
Article Link

CFB TRENTON, Ont. - The repatriation ceremony for the latest Canadian soldier killed in Afghanistan has been delayed because of severe winter weather in Europe.

The military transport plane carrying Cpl. Steve Martin was expected to arrive at CFB Trenton in eastern Ontario at 2 p.m. EST today.

However, a spokeswoman at CFB Trenton says the plane stopped in Germany but is now delayed there because of the weather.

Travel in Europe, especially in England, has been hampered over several days due to inclement weather as airports struggle to keep runways free of snow and ice.

The repatriation ceremony has been tentatively rescheduled to Wednesday at 2 p.m., but that is expected to be confirmed later today.
