City of Toronto to honour fallen Canadian soldier Private Kevin McKay
The City of Toronto will honour Pte. Kevin McKay by lowering the flags at Toronto City Hall and all Civic Centres to half mast.

"On behalf of all Torontonians and all Canadians I extend deepest condolences to the family and friends of Pte. McKay at this difficult time," said Toronto Mayor David Miller. "The pride, courage and dignity Pte. McKay showed in service to his country and his ultimate sacrifice must never be forgotten. We all owe him and all those who have died in overseas service a debt of gratitude."

Pte. McKay was killed in Afghanistan on May 13, 2010. He was on patrol when he came into contact with an improvised explosive device. His father is Toronto Fire Service Capt. Fred McKay.

Mayor Miller has requested that flags be flown at half mast on the next business day for all soldiers with Toronto connections.
