Canadian flag is flying at half-mast as mark of respect for 215 Indigenous children whose graves were discovered at the Kamloops Indian Residential School, British Columbia.
The discovery of the mass grave has resulted in mourning across the country.
Flag is lowered at the Smart Centres Shopping Mall on Fourth Avenue in St. Catharines.
Niagara’s municipal flags are lowered at municipal facilities across the region in honour of the 215 children.
“The flag will be flown at half-mast for one hour for each of the lives that were taken,” says Niagara Region.
Flags will be flown at half-mast starting today until June 8.
