We ask that the flags in Eeyou Istchee remain at half-staff until the day of Charly’s funeral as a mark of respect for his life and for the ways in which he contributed to the happiness of the many individuals who played hockey with him. This is done in remembrance of the fact that the flags will continue to be flown at a half-staff until the day of Charly’s funeral.
I have faith that you, Charly, will be able to discover a peace that is beyond your comprehension.
