The following statement was issued today by the Honourable Dwight Ball, Premier of Newfoundland and Labrador:
Flags Lowered at Confederation Building
The Canadian, Newfoundland and Labrador, and Union Jack flags at Confederation Building will fly at half-mast as this government stands in solidarity with other world leaders to honour those who were lost and injured in the mosque shootings in Christchurch, New Zealand.
This kind of violence is unacceptable. Out of respect, and as a symbol of sorrow, the flags will remain lowered until sunrise tomorrow (Saturday, March 16).
