Posted: 336 days ago

The District of Sechelt has cancelled Canada Day activities.

 

The Canada Day committee worked hard to plan an event recognizing the good things Canada offers while also acknowledging the legacy of harm caused to Indigenous people but determined this balanced approach was not enough at this time. As participants and citizens have expressed concern that now is not a time for any kind of celebration, Sechelt Council and the Canada Day Committee; in consultation with the shíshálh Nation, the Sechelt Farmers & Artisans Market and the Sechelt Downtown Business Association, decided to cancel the parade and activities.
