the flag on the Peace Tower should always be at full staff to show our resolve

"The Canadian flag, at full staff over the Peace Tower, is a symbol and source of inspiration to our soldiers. The Canadian flag, at half-mast over the Peace Tower, is a symbol and source of inspiration to our enemy."
It pretty much sums up my thoughts on the matter.

I did the research and according to the DHH site it is half MastingFrostnipped Elf said:If you do a little research you will find that either form is correct. Canadians tend to use mast, US tends to use staff, both terms arise from nautical heritage.
