Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has ordered federal buildings throughout Canada to decrease their flags to half-mast to honour the 215 kids discovered buried at a former residential faculty.
Trudeau introduced the transfer on social media on Sunday morning. The flag atop Ottawa’s Peace Tower may even be flown at half-mast.
To honour the 215 kids whose lives have been taken on the former Kamloops residential faculty and all Indigenous kids who by no means made it residence, the survivors, and their households, I’ve requested that the Peace Tower flag and flags on all federal buildings be flown at half-mast.
