"Education got us into this mess and education will get us out."
-Murray Sinclair, Chief Commissioner, Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada
Since 2013, September 30 has been observed as Orange Shirt Day, a day to recognize the history and legacies of the residential school system in Canada. Orange Shirt Day originates from the story of residential school survivor Phyllis Webstad, who at six was stripped of her new orange shirt on her first day attending the St. Joseph Mission Residential School near Williams Lake, B.C.
