Oh Canada

Canada Day celebrations took place in several towns across the District on Friday, including a parade in Barwick. Orange took a prominent place alongside red and white in the festivities, in honour of the swelling desire for Reconciliation across the country. Most Canada Day celebrations were cancelled last year, to show respect for 215 unmarked graves discovered at a former residential school site in Kamloops. Efforts are ongoing to locate and honour all children who died at residential schools.
