The flag at city hall and city facilities have been at half-staff since the May 4 death of Robert Wade, Hamilton’s first mayor post-amalgamation.
It will be returned to full staff on June 1, the City of Hamilton tweeted on Friday, May 19.
People can sign a book of condolences at city hall on the second floor outside the mayor’s office, and the Ancaster Municipal Service Centres until May 31.
