City flags at half-mast in honour of former mayor Cliff Wright
The tributes continue to pour in for former Saskatoon mayor Cliff Wright who died Tuesday at age 87.

A date has not yet been set for Wright’s set for the funeral, but the city says the book of condolence will remain available to ensure the public has plenty of time to sign it.
Following the funeral, the city says it will present the book to Wright's family.
