This morning the Town of Strasbourg posted announced on their Facebook page that, “The Town of Strasbourg will be lowering the flags to half-mast on September 30 in solemn recognition of Canada’s first National Day for Truth and Reconciliation, a day to honour the survivors and victims of the residential school system and reflect on the atrocities Canada committed against Indigenous Peoples.”

Strasbourg joins the neighbouring town of Nokomis in recognition of the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation.”

The post goes on to say, “The Town affirms that we are situated on Treaty 4 Territory, the traditional territory of the Cree and Saulteaux, Assiniboine and Metis. We encourage everyone to wear an orange shirt on this day and take moments to pause and reflect, acknowledging those who are mourning, thinking and/or praying for them and each other.”
