Blackfalds, Alberta (September 24, 2021)– The Government of Canada proclaimed September 30 as the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation; a day for recognizing and reflecting on the survivors, families, and communities affected by the trauma and ramifications of residential schools.Mayor Richard Poole stated that while Council appreciates there is an obligation to recognize this holiday, “our hope is that this declaration creates an opportunity for staff and residents to learn about the tragedy behind residential schools, and how these institutions seriously impacted survivors in our Indigenous nations across the country.”The Town of Blackfalds will fully implement September 30 as an official annual stat holiday as explained by Chief Administrative Officer Myron Thompson. “Our collective agreement states that we will acknowledge any day proclaimed by Federal Government as a stat,” said Thompson.On September 30, Town facilities including the Civic Cultural Centre, FCSS, Wadey Visitor and Information Centre, and Operations Centre will be closed. The Abbey Centre will be open during stat holiday hours from 11am – 5pm.The Town of Blackfalds encourages everyone to learn about, and reflect upon, our country’s history or participate in events that commemorate and demonstrate support for all survivors of the Residential School System.Here are a few ideas of how one can get involved on National Day for Truth and Reconciliation:Read books by Indigenous authorsReview the 94 Truth and Reconciliation calls to action and committee to one or moreWatch online events hosted by the National Centre for Truth and ReconciliationIdentify and contact your local Indigenous serving organizationsRead Phyllis Webstad’s book “The Orange Shirt Story”We acknowledge that we are on Treaty 6 territory, a traditional meeting grounds, gathering place and travelling route to the Cree, Saulteaux (So-toe), Blackfoot, Métis, Dene (De-nay) and Nakota Sioux (Sue).
