The City of Windsor has lowered the Canadian Flag at government buildings and on Windsor’s riverfront in memory of the 215 bodies of children discovered at the site of a former Kamloops Indian Residential School in British Columbia.

The Department of Canadian Heritage requested flags at all federal buildings and establishments across Canada be lowered until further notice in memory of the thousands of children who were sent to residential schools, for those who never returned and in honour of the families whose lives were forever changed.

Flags have also been lowered at local hospitals and schools.
