City of Canada Bay General Manager Peter Gainsford:
“I have today been made aware of banners that have been erected in our area containing an extremely unfortunate, and disrespectful, error.
I am extremely disappointed and accept full responsibility.
I have been informed that the error was due to a miscommunication between Council staff and the printer of the banners.
All of the banners are currently being removed with urgency.
I have spoken to representatives of the Concord, Five Dock and Drummoyne RSL branches this morning and unreservedly apologised for any offence.
I would like to apologise to our community, in particular to the members of our local RSL branches and to our veterans, for this egregious error.”
