Mayor’s opening statement
Mayor Andy Adams pointed out that a number of Council members were wearing orange at the meeting. He explained that the City of Campbell River has lowered Canada flags at its facilities in honour of the 215 children discovered buried at the Kamloops Residential School.
The Mayor said flags will remain at half mast for 215 hours, until 9 a.m. Tuesday, June 8, “to mark this tragic loss and the legacy of harm the residential school system has and continues to have – certainly a dark blight on the history of our province and country.”
He added, “In lowering the flags, we recognize the devastation that the residential school system wreaked on
families and communities, and we send support to the survivors and their loved ones. We also acknowledge the
systemic racism that continues to erode our society, and we renew our pledge to work for more inclusive,
understanding community connections.” Read more...
