The annual flag raising tradition took place on Canada Day again this year. Hikers of all ages gathered at Mount Roberts before the trek up to raise the flag.
“I’ve been the flag carrier for 3 years in a row and last year I climbed up the flag pole on top of Roberts,” said Mackenzie Gibson a local youth who explained he wasn’t able to make the hike this year due to an operation.
Members of the Gibson family did however participate in the Canada Day festivities.
Charlotte Gibson said that her favourite part “was seeing all the views at the top and when they raised the flag.”
The turnout for this year’s event brought together about 100 participants.
