City Hall Flags at Half-Mast in Honour of Late City Alderman 
The flags at Timmins City Hall will be lowered for the remainder of the week in honour of Alan Pope, following his passing at the age of 76.

Alan Pope was served as an Alderman from 1973-1974.  He was a member of the inaugural council of the City of Timmins in 1973.  In the 1977 provincial election, Alan was appointed as MPP for Cochrane South.  In 1981, he was promoted to Minister of Natural Resources. 

Alan Pope was an advocate for the City of Timmins and Northern Ontario.  He continued his legal practice in the city with Racicot, Maisonneuve, Labelle, Gosselin.  In 2006, Alan wrote a report on the Kashechewan Crisis, recommending that residents of the community be relocated to a new reserve site near Timmins.

The City would like to extend their condolences to the Pope family, including his wife and two children.
