Flags at Northumberland County facilities will remain at half-mast today to mark the tragic loss of four family members in London, Ontario following a car attack on Sunday, June 6.

Our community stands with you in this grief, and resoundingly rejects Islamophobia, and all forms of racism and hate.”
