Base Commander, Captain (Navy) Jason Boyd gets the cuffs slapped on by arresting officer and Tour de Rock rider Sub-Lieutenant Antoine Leblanc of Military Police Unit Esquimalt.

Capt(N) Boyd, who has a self-confessed sweet tooth, was charged with “Excessive Treats and Sundays in the First Degree”, during a mock Jail and Bail Fundraiser for Tour de Rock on Sept. 18.

SLt LeBlanc and other first responders who make up the Tour de Rock team embarked on their two-week, 1,100 kilometre journey across Vancouver Island Sept. 22, returning Oct. 5, in support of pediatric cancer research and support programs.

During the mock Jail and Bail fundraiser, online donors pledged the necessary $500 to have Capt(N) Boyd set free on bail, with donations made through the Base, SLt Leblanc’s, and the Tour de Rock Facebook Pages.

Canadian Fleet Pacific Commanding Officer, Commodore Angus Topshee, also participated in the fundraiser and raised $560, enough money to buy back his freedom.
