The half-masting of national, provincial and municipal flags is a protocol whereby honour and respect is demonstrated by the City of Brampton. The act of half-masting is a dramatic visual statement, which reflects the collective sorrow and mourning of the public.
Flags at Brampton City Hall will be lowered on August 7 in memory of former Brampton City Councillor, Peter Richards, who passed away on July 31, 2019.
Peter served on Brampton City Council for 12 years, over 4 successive terms from 1991 - 2003, representing the residents of the former Ward 8. Peter was known for his great sense of humour and love and dedication working for the citizens of Brampton. He was awarded the 1998 Arts Person of the Year Award by the City of Brampton.
