Every Child Matters – St. B marks residential school tragedy

Our thoughts today are with the families and communities in mourning for the 215 residential school children discovered on the grounds of the former Kamloops Indian Residential School late last week.  To all affected, we extend our heartfelt condolences and restate our commitment to keep the conversation going in order to expand our understanding of the historical events between Canada’s Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples.

To acknowledge this terrible loss and the lives taken, St. Boniface Hospital has lowered the Canadian flag outside the hospital’s main entrance, and the illuminated cross atop our building will be set to glow amber-orange:  a colour symbolizing the trauma endured by Indigenous students taken from their families, made famous  through the story of Phyllis Webstad and Orange Shirt Day first started in 2013.

May the children discovered in Kamloops soon be reunited with their families to be laid to rest with the dignity they deserve, because every child matters. (31 May 2021)
