Blue Ribbon Campaign

Strathmore Municipal Building with Blue Lights

The Town of Strathmore has joined households across Strathmore and the Calgary region in a blue ribbon campaign. This campaign encourages people to tie blue ribbons onto their homes or to replace porch lights with blue bulbs to show support for the family of Sgt. Andrew Harnett and his colleagues in the Calgary Police Service. Blue LED lights have been tied to the pillars of the Strathmore Municipal Building and the Town lowered its flags to half mast at the Strathmore Municipal Building on Saturday as a symbol of mourning for Sgt. Harnett.

Mayor Pat Fule shared a statement to social media expressing his condolences on behalf of the Town:

“Tonight I'm very saddened at the death of Sgt. Andrew Harnett. I have just been informed that he was also a resident of Strathmore. I didn't know Sgt.Harnett, but I wanted to express my deepest regret for his loss. He died in his service to protect people, and he like other police officers, are guardians of us all. I am very sorry, and on behalf of the Town of Strathmore, I wanted to express my gratitude for his service, as well as all police, as they put themsleves at risk everyday for us. May God bless him and his family...we are all so sorry."

The Calgary Police Service has set up an email address for those wishing to offer messages of condolence to the family of Sgt. Harnett.
