Second annual Truth and Reconciliation Day Walk set for Sept. 29

Turnout was huge for last year’s event

The Sts’ailes First Nation is hosting its second annual Truth and Reconciliation Day Walk on Thursday, Sept. 29 at 9 :30 a.m. beginning at the Sasquatch Crossing Eco Lodge (15500 Morris Valley Road).

This walk is in observance of the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation and to honour residential school survivors and the memories of those who did not survive.

The walk will continue to Sandpiper Golf Course (14282 Morris Valley Road). A bus will be available to

Last year’s walk – the first of its kind – saw a huge response. Hundreds of people filled the street despite consistent rain throughout. Most of the walkers were clad in orange with some carrying pictures and signs with words like “Every Child Matters.”
