Flags to fly at half-mast in Surrey for 215 hours in memory of lives lost at former Kamloops residential school

SURREY Mayor Doug McCallum said in a statement on Sunday that the City will fly flags at half-mast to remember and honour the 215 children whose remains were discovered at the site of a former Kamloops residential school.

“The heartbreaking legacy of the residential school system is a dark and shameful chapter in Canada’s history. The flags will be lowered tomorrow [Monday] at all civic buildings and will fly at half-mast for 215 hours in memory of each young life lost.”
