Campus Incident: Theft of Canadian Flag (Seeking Tips)

Sometime during the night of July 17-18, 2015, unknown persons accessed the roof of the Thorvaldson Building and after forcefully removing the Canadian Flag from the mast station located there, positioned a Molson Pilsner Saskatchewan Roughrider Flag in its place.

In perpetrating this dangerous and reckless act, the persons effectively desecrated an emblem used for many years by the University of Saskatchewan to honor the memory of deceased faculty, staff, students and other distinguished people. They also damaged University of Saskatchewan property to the extent where expensive repair was necessitated.

If you have any information which might assist us in identifying the persons, please contact Protective Services at 306-966-5555.
