Right to life flag request on hold

After conferring with the applicants, the City of Prince Albert has deferred an application for a Right to Life flag raising in Memorial Square at City Hall. Correspondence opposing the Right to Life flag raising was heard at the Executive Committee meeting on Monday, April 3, 2017.  The correspondence was referred to the Mayor’s office for review. The Mayor’s office, along with the Director of Community Services, reviewed the objections and concluded that the flag is not consistent with any nationally or provincially approved flag, which is unique to this group.
