Mayor Crombie’s National Day of Mourning Statement

“On behalf of the City of Mississauga and Members of Council, I wish to acknowledge Canada’s National Day of Mourning.

“On this day, our thoughts and prayers are with families who have loved ones that have either been injured or killed in the workplace.

“In April 2013, the Brampton & Mississauga District Labour Council unveiled their Injured Workers Monument, located at The Brampton Flower City Seniors Centre.

“This monument serves as a reminder to local business and residents that it is incumbent upon all employers to ensure that their work environments are safe and secure places of business for their employees.

“This morning, I attended a ceremony hosted by the Peel Regional Labour Council, Workers Health and Safety Centre in partnership with the City of Brampton to honour the lives we’ve lost while pledging to renew our city’s commitment to providing a safe and healthy workplace for all employees.

To honour the memory of those who lost their lives, were injured or fell ill due to workplace-related hazards and incident, flags at all City facilities will be flown at half-mast today.”
