Shirley Colley Scheuer started this petition to Politicians

The Orchard Villa Retirement/Long Term Care facility located at 1955 Valley Farm Road, Pickering, Ontario has lost 55 residents due to COVID19.  This has affected the community at large - a deep sense of loss is felt by family members, friends, neighbours, room mates, strangers, care providers.  The people who died are mothers, fathers, friends, sisters, brothers, wives, husbands, neighbours—many of whom were veterans that were honoured at remembrance day ceremonies.  I am petitioning to get the flag at Orchard Villa lowered to half mast to honour our loved ones.   This is a ceremonial act to show respect for these lives lost and to show  the residents living in the residence that although we cannot physically see them due to isolation that they do not mourn this tragedy alone, we are in this together.  It shows families that we mourn together.  We are one big sad family right now.  Help me LOWER THE FLAG and give our lost loved ones the respect and dignity they deserve at this very difficult, emotional time. We need our politicians to see that the community is crying, we need their approval to get the flag lowered to half mast.  Sign the petition in support of the lowered flag.  Show them we care.
