Statement: Black Lives Matter
June 5, 2020: Sadness. Grief. Shock. Disbelief. Desire to right the wrongs. A wide range of emotions have been felt by all persons over the past 12 days since the tragic death of George Floyd in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Region of Queens Municipality strives to be an inclusive, welcoming and supportive community for all residents and visitors, and as such, we do recognize that there is room for improvement.
It is timely for everyone to reflect on past actions, and strive to ensure a future without racism.
Out of respect and recognition that black lives matter, we are flying the Pan African Flag on the special purpose flagpole on the Liverpool waterfront through to June 19, 2020.
Please take care of each other and continue to be safe.
Mayor David Dagley
