Flags to remain lowered in honour of Ottawa tragedy
As a country, we continue to mourn the loss of Cpl. Nathan Cirillo, a reservist from Hamilton, who died tragically in Ottawa on Oct. 22. The courage of first responders and emergency personnel is inspiring to us all, and we stand together in solidarity. We are #OttawaStrong. Together.
Cpl. Cirillo was a member of the Hamilton Argylls reserve unit. To honour his memory and all those who have lost their lives defending our freedom, all Peel District School Board schools and work sites will lower their flags until further notice.
