Provincial Flag at City Hall placed at Half-Mast following passing of Saskatchewan Lieutenant Governor W. Thomas Molloy

The flag of the Province of Saskatchewan is flying at half-mast at Swift Current’s City Hall following the passing of Saskatchewan's Lieutenant Governor, the Honourable W. Thomas Molloy.

The City learned of the Lieutenant Governor’s passing following an announcement made by Premier Scott Moe yesterday, July 2nd. Molloy passed away after a courageous battle with cancer. Mayor Denis Perrault, on behalf of the City of Swift Current, offered his condolences to Molloy’s family, friends and colleagues.

“Lieutenant Governor Molloy served our Province and Country with dedication, compassion and respect over many decades,” said Mayor Perrault. “Personally, I had the opportunity to meet Mr. Molloy on a few occasions, and I fondly recall his kindness and his genuine interest in the community of Swift Current.”

The Provincial Flag at City Hall will remain at half-mast until the end of the day of the funeral service, which is to be announced.
