Sherbrooke flags at half-mast for Paris
Saturday, the City of Sherbrooke flew its flags in front of City Hall at half-mast to show its support for the people of France.
“The people of Sherbrooke would like to give their support to the people of France and to denounce the vicious attacks that occurred in Paris in the last few hours. The year 2015 has brought with it its share of barbaric acts since the Charlie Hebdo attacks in January. Again this time, we rise in support of peace and extend a hand of friendship to our French friends who are going through this difficult time,” said Bernard Sévigny, the mayor of Sherbrooke, on Saturday.
