Flags at Half-Mast for 215 Hours

May 31, 2021

Town of Maple Creek flags have been lowered to half-mast to honour and remember the 215 children who were found buried on the site of the former Kamloops Indian Residential School on the Tk'emlups te Secwépemc First Nation in British Columbia.
 
Our flags will remain at half-mast for 215 hours, until Wednesday June 9, 2021.
 
Following this discovery, the Government of Saskatchewan and the Federation of Sovereign Indigenous Nations (FSIN) are issuing a joint call for the Government of Canada to immediately commence research on undocumented deaths and burials in residential schools in Saskatchewan, including radar ground search at residential school sites.
