The flag at the Catholic Education Centre in Wallaceburg has been lowered to half mast this weekend, in recognition of the National Day of Mourning for persons who have been killed or injured in the workplace. Flags at federal, provincial and municipal office buildings across Canada will also be lowered in honour of the observance.
The official day of mourning is Sunday, April 28, 2019.
The first such National Day of Mourning was held in Canada in 1991 and since then more than 100 other countries have also adopted the custom.
We offer our prayers for the victims of workplace tragedies and their families.
