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.

WireService.ca Media Release (05/05/2017) Prince Albert, SK - 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.

"All groups have a fair opportunity to have their issues represented and as a democratic institution, the City has an interest in respecting the right for residents to express themselves," said Mayor Greg Dionne.

"When speaking with people it was apparent that it was the picture on the flag that was at issue. We are prepared to grant the request, but we have asked that a new flag be submitted without this particular imagery which does not give them enough time for this year," said Mayor Dionne.

"I would like to see our procedure amended to include a requirement that a picture of the flag be submitted as part of the application."
