Day of Remembrance to honour the victims of the COVID-19
The mayor of the City of Pointe-Claire, John Belvedere, and the members of City Council invite citizens to join the province-wide movement of commemoration to honour the victims of the pandemic and their families and loved ones, as well as all those working on the front lines in the fight against COVID-19.
“Today, the City of Pointe-Claire joins the government of Québec in paying tribute to the victims of COVID-19 as well as their families and loved ones. One year ago, the World Health Organization declared the coronavirus outbreak a pandemic. Since then, our entire community has been working together to limit the spread of the virus and ensure that everyone gets the care they need and that a vaccine is developed,” Mayor John Belvedere said.
“On this day of remembrance, we want to recognize and celebrate the work of the many people who have provided health care, food and essential services over the past year and continue to do so today. We invite the citizens of Pointe-Claire to observe a minute of silence at 1 p.m. to pay tribute to all those who have lost their lives as well as their families and loved ones,” the mayor concluded.
The flags at City Hall will be flown at half-mast for this day of remembrance.
