Every Child Matters flag raised in Flagpole Park
The Village of Telkwa has raised the Every Child Matters flag in Flagpole Park this morning. This flag will fly in place of the Village of Telkwa flag in recognition of Truth and Reconciliation and will remain up until after the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation on September 30th.
The Government of Canada recently passed legislation to make September 30th a federal statutory holiday called “National Day for Truth and Reconciliation”. Telkwa Council and staff recognize and commemorate the tragic history of residential schools and honour the children lost, the survivors, their families and their communities.
