Flags lowered to half-mast to honour the victims of the tragedy in Toronto through to the National Day of Mourning

Flags at all Strathcona County facilities have now been lowered to half-mast to honour the victims of the Toronto tragedy; as well as the National Day of Mourning.

“Strathcona County condemns the senseless and tragic attack on innocent lives that occurred last week in Toronto,” says Mayor Rod Frank. “Once again, we must stand united with our fellow Canadians in the face of such atrocities, and we offer our deepest condolences to all those affected, particularly to the families of the victims.”

“This week we also recognize the National Day of Mourning. Our flags will remain lowered until sunset on Saturday April 28 to honour all of the workers across Canada, who have lost their lives in the work place.”

 

Set in the centre of Alberta’s energy and agricultural heartland, Strathcona County is a thriving, successful and vibrant community of over 98,000 residents. Strathcona County is made up of the urban area of Sherwood Park and a large adjacent rural area of farms, acreages and smaller hamlets. It is home to 75 per cent of refining in Western Canada. With a focus on economic, governance, social, cultural and environmental sustainability, Strathcona County is committed to balancing the unique needs of its diverse community.
