RDKB lowers flags to recognize Nova Scotia shooting victims
The Regional District of Kootenay Boundary has lowered flags to half-mast at its Trail and Grand Forks offices in response to the country’s worst-ever mass shooting that took place near Portapique, Nova Scotia on April 18 and 19.
“On behalf of the our board of directors and staff, I want to express our sadness and shock at this horrific event; we recognize that this is a horrible time for all those families who lost loved ones, and for their friends, neighbours and coworkers. Today we stand together in sympathy with our rural neighbours across the country. Nova Scotia has lost a brave RCMP member serving her community and so many other innocent people whose deaths have cast a large shadow that reaches as far as our regional district,” said RDKB Board Chair Diane Langman.
The RDKB periodically lower flags to half-mast in response to a tragic or catastrophic event in the world.
