LETHBRIDGE, AB – The University of Lethbridge is honouring the victims of a former residential school in Kamloops, BC.
A virtual gathering is set to take place Friday, June 4th where you can simply log in with a Zoom link and watch.
The U of L calls the discovery of the remains of 215 children “abhorrent” and says this is a time for grieving and reflection.
In addition to a moment of silence, this University of Lethbridge virtual gathering will include a prayer by an Elder and an honour song.
The virtual gathering will begin Friday between 10-11 am.
People are asked to wear orange, which commemorates the impacts of residential schools.
