We are shocked and saddened to learn of the sudden and tragic murder yesterday of a long-time City employee at his home in Burnaby. We extend our deepest condolences to his family and friends.
This is obviously a very disturbing event for City staff, particularly those who knew and worked with our colleague. We are offering counseling and support services to employees who request it, and we will continue to coordinate with the VPD while the matter is under investigation.
The flag at City Hall will fly at half-mast today in his honour.
- Mayor Gregor Robertson
