Death of Guy Lafleur – City flags at half-mast in solidarity

In a show of solidarity, the City’s flags in front of City Hall will fly at half-mast on Tuesday, May 3, for the funeral of Guy Lafleur, who passed away on April 22.

A former professional ice hockey player, Guy Lafleur was drafted by the National Hockey League (NHL) in 1971, where he notably played for 14 seasons with the Montreal Canadiens in addition to winning five Stanley Cups.

Inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1988 and named one of the 100 Greatest NHL Players in 2017, he garnered many honours and awards throughout his career. In 2022, he was named to the Order of Hockey in Canada by Hockey Canada, in honour of his impact on hockey over his entire career.

“We extend our sincere condolences to the family and loved ones of Guy Lafleur,” Mayor Thomas said.

The flags will be at half mast until sunset.
