Flags at Half-Mast for 215 hours in memory of the 215 children
On May 27, the remains of 215 children were found in the area around the Kamloops Indian Residential School.

In response to the tragedy, on Monday we lowered our flag along with the Royal Canadian Legion Branch # 148. They will be at half-mast for 215 hours, one hour for each child who never made it home. The Town of Renfrew extends its sympathies to the survivors, and their families, and all those affected by this tragedy. For more information, please read the press release from the Tk'emlúps te Secwépemc. https://tkemlups.ca/wp-content/uploads/05-May-27-2021-TteS-MEDIA-RELEASE.pdf
