Media Advisory: City of Toronto to remember September 11
  
The City of Toronto will fly all flags at Toronto City Hall, Metro Hall and the
Civic Centres at half-mast from sunrise to sunset tomorrow to mark the
September 11 terrorist attacks two years ago. The flags are being lowered in
honour and remembrance of more than 3,000 men, women and children who perished
that day.

At Toronto City Hall, the flag of the United States of America will be flown on
the courtesy flagpole on the podium roof.

Mayor Mel Lastman will ask members to observe a moment of silence at the City
of Toronto's Policy and Finance Committee meeting at 9:30 a.m., in Committee
Room #1 at City Hall.

Toronto Fire Services will also pay tribute to the victims of September 11,
2001 at all Toronto Fire Service Stations. A ceremonial tribute will occur
simultaneously at each station between 10 and 10:30 a.m. For more information
about Fire Services events, please call Captain David Sheen, Toronto Fire
Services Headquarters at 416-338-9317, or 316-578-4316 (cell).
