International Day of Truth & Reconciliation

September 30 is Canada's first National Day of Truth and Reconciliation. The observance asks citizens to acknowledge and reflect upon the arrival, history, and impact of residential schools in Canada. Over 150,000 First Nations, Inuit and Métis children and their families were immediately affected. Whole communities have suffered in the aftermath.

While parts of Canada's history are difficult to own, and even more uncomfortable to talk about, we need to. Learning takes time, but acceptance and friendship can be immediate.  This observance and many others to come can be the start of the learning and healing process.

Tomorrow, our offices will be closed out of respect and flags will fly at half mast. Waste collection will continue as scheduled.
