Saskatchewan raises Trinbago flag to mark country’s independence anniversary

The late Dr Angela Cropper

The recently-formed Trinbago Association of Saskatchewan (TAS) observed Trinidad and Tobago’s 60th anniversary of independence on Saturday with a flag raising ceremony at the front of the legislative building in Regina.

Among those present at the ceremony were Laura Ross, Minister of Parks, Culture and Sport who brought greetings from Saskatchewan Premier Scott Moe, Regina Mayor Sandra Masters, Regina Councillor Ternia Shaw, Dr. Carlos Roberts, Trinidad and Tobago’s Honorary Consul in Regina, and scores of Trinidad and Tobago nationals.

At the ceremony, the late Dr. Angela Cropper was recognized by TAS as “an outstanding citizen of Trinidad and Tobago.”

Dr. Cropper served as senior adviser on environment and development at the UNDP Bureau for Development Policy, executive secretary of the UN Convention on Biological Diversity and Head of Governance at the World Conservation Union.

She and her husband, John, formed the Cropper Foundation, a charitable organization committed to sustainable development.
