Village Office Flags Lowered to Half-mast

By Wayne Robinson, Chief Administrative Officer
on May 31, 2021


Flags at the Village office will be lowered to half-mast today in recognition of the 215 children found buried on the grounds of the former Kamloops Indian Residential School.

The flags will be held at this status for a minimum of 215 hours, one hour for every child whose life was lost.

Our hearts go out to our friends of the Secwepémc and specifically the Simpcw communities.
