“September 30th, 2021. National Day for Truth and Reconciliation – Let’s be mindful by showing respect to our Indigenous community members. Learning from our past is the only way to move forward to a more inclusive society embracing Indigenous heritage.
Today, we honour the children who never returned from residential schools and we honour the survivors, family and communities still affected by this tragedy.
The Community and Township of Red Rock stand tall by our Indigenous family, friends and neighbours.”
Mayor Darquise Robinson
Today, we encourage everyone to take a moment to reflect on the painful and lasting impacts of residential schools in Canada. Today is an opportunity for us all to learn more about the history, and reflect on how each of us can play a part in the journey of reconciliation. Please wear an orange shirt today because Every. Child. Matters.
