Colchester Honours and Remembers Those Lost During April 2020 Tragedy

April 15, 2021

As the anniversary of the tragic events of April 18 & 19, 2020 approaches, the Municipality of Colchester prepares to honor and remember the 22 lives and unborn child that were so senselessly taken one-year ago.

In remembrance, the Municipality will be lowering flags at its offices and facilities to half-mast and lighting the Municipal Office at 1 Church Street, Truro in blue. Other organizations and community members are encouraged to join in similar expressions of observance that may include hanging a flag in a window or tying Nova Scotia tartan to a mailbox.

In addition to deeply impacting local communities and the province it has been apparent by the outpouring of love and support received from around the country, and the world, that this tragedy has greatly affected many.

The Municipality of Colchester would like to thank all who have offered condolences, kind gestures, expressions of remembrance, and donations to support the community and victims’ families. All have been a light that has helped restore and lift spirits during a very dark and difficult time.

“Our hearts and thoughts are with all who continue to grieve and heal. We hope that comfort and solace may be found in those around us both now and in the days ahead,” said Christine Blair, Mayor of Colchester County.
