WINNIPEG--Flags are at half-mast at city hall this morning in honour of the memory of Charleswood-Tuxedo Coun. Bill Clement.

The 27-year council veteran died Monday of complications from his cancer treatment.

A meeting of council's public works committee, which Clement chaired, has been cancelled this morning.

City hall is in a sombre mood as councillors wander into the building.

"Gruff exterior, but he had a warm heart," said St. Boniface Coun. Dan Vandal.

Mayor Sam Katz said he last saw Clement on Saturday in hospital.

Clement had told other councillors he was suffering from pneumonia, a complication of his treatment for lymphoma.

A book of condolences will be at city hall until the next council meeting on May 19.
