- Ian Boddy, Mayor of Owen Sound

We believe that every member of our community is entitled to live freely, safely, and to prosper, without fear of violence.

I am heartbroken and outraged by this senseless act of violence toward Sharif Rahman and one of his employees this past week. Sharif is the owner of the popular restaurant, The Curry House, and he now fights for his life in hospital. Sharif is an outstanding member of our community serving on City and County Committees, and working as a successful small business owner and restaurateur in the River District.

I want all residents to know that the City takes this very seriously and that Owen Sound Police Services continue to act with urgency to find the individuals responsible. An attack like this on one of our business community members is an attack on the entirety of the community. We all need to stand up against this violence. Please contact the Owen Sound Police Services if you have information on this tragic event that will help the investigation.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to Sharif and Sharif’s wife and children. For those wanting to help Sharif and his family, a GoFundMe page has been set up to assist the family.
