The flags at Cape Breton Regional Municipality civic buildings are at half mast in honour of Canadian soldier Cpl. Nathan Cirillo who was killed in the line of duty at the National War Memorial today.
Mayor Cecil Clarke says his thought and prayers are with Cpl. Cirillo's family and the families of those injured and impacted by today's attack on Canada's capital.
"Our men and women in uniform stand in harms way each and every day and we are truly grateful for their courage and service," said Clarke. "We saw true bravery today, in those who faced a terrorist threat head on. Our community is grateful and proud."

SYDNEY, NS - The Cape Breton Regional Municipality is encouraging the provincial Justice Minister to conduct a complete and thorough review of the 1990 death of New Waterford teenager Clayton Miller.
Mayor Clarke wrote to Provincial Attorney General and Minister of Justice Lena Diab and expressed support of the review she announced in September.
"The full scope of the Medical Examiner's office needs to be brought to bear on this matter," said Mayor Clarke in his letter. "The Chief Medical Examiner, Doctor Matt Bowes, must examine all of the previous work that was done and provide as definitive a conclusion as possible."
