Appeal to thief to return flag given by daughter

On Friday night we went to bed happy in the knowledge that we live in the greatest country in the world.

Re: stolen Canadian flag.

On Friday night we went to bed happy in the knowledge that we live in the greatest country in the world.

We chose Canada to immigrate to from Northern Ireland 49 years ago and never looked back or had any regrets. No family to help with our five children but we worked hard and everyone pulled their weight.

Happy days until we lost our son and daughter at the early ages of 34 and 36. Our daughter bought that flag for us and it has been out every first of July in Saskatchewan, Ontario, Alberta and British Columbia and in so many towns and cities I can’t bore you with the list. Alas, when we looked on Saturday morning our dear flag was gone, along with a piece of our heart.

Our lights were stolen from the front garden the first week we got here two years ago (the same week my husband was diagnosed with cancer) and our political sign was so covered with graffiti during the last election we should have known better but we never in 100 years imagined that someone would stoop so low as to take a Canadian flag, the one thing that stands for all things good and honourable.

I appeal to the culprit/s, leave it back and give back something we love so much and if you know who did this tell them to please return it, no questions asked. Our neighbour has a camera and you may be on there, we don’t know yet, however, we still think Duncan is the greatest little place to live in. Please put it in the mailbox and we will be grateful.
