Flags lowered for fallen soldier

Canadians are being encouraged to wear red on Friday in honour of Cpl. Nathan Cirillo, the Canadian reservist who was murdered Wednesday morning at the National War Memorial in Ottawa.

Across Canada Thursday, flags at federal buildings, and many at private buildings, were flying at half mast, and small shrines and private remembrances were popping up, including red flowers left on the cenotaph in Langley City next to the Royal Canadian Legion branch on 56th Avenue. A bouquet was also left on the Fort Langley cenotaph, where the flag was at half mast.

The shooter in Ottawa was shot and killed by security officials after he ran into the Parliament buildings. Several other people were injured, but not seriously.

There are four cenotaphs in Langley, at both Legions (in Aldergrove and the City) and two in cemeteries, in Fort Langley and Murrayville.
