Orange Shirt Day planned for September

Phyllis Webstad of the Orange Shirt Day Committee gave city council an update on Orange Shirt Day activities for September 2014, which include identifying an Orange Shirt Day champion, a National Assembly of First Nations resolution, and registering Orange Shirt Day as part of the national Culture Days volunteer movement.

Orange Shirt Day will be again celebrated up to and including September 30, 2014.

Orange Shirt Day is becoming a international movement to recognize the harm the residential school system did to children’s sense of self-esteem and wellbeing, and as an affirmation of our commitment to ensure that everyone around us matters.
