We have made significant changes to our July 1 program to create space for conversation and reflection following the devastating discovery of the remains of more than 215 children at the site of the former Kamloops Residential School. While we acknowledge there is much in Canada to be proud of, we recognize there is considerable work to be done on the road to healing and reconciliation.
Through the theme of Canada Together, we are aiming to create a program with a message of hope as we come together as people, communities, and cultures and take steps towards a better future in Canada that recognizes and honours the rich heritage and contributions of Indigenous people in Canada.
The one-hour broadcast on Global BC includes a special message from Chief Dr. Robert Joseph of Reconciliation Canada, musical performances by 54•40 and Delhi 2 Dublin, a dance performance from Spakwus Slolem Eagle Song Dancers, and more.

Media partners include Global BC, Global News Radio 980 CKNW, and The Province.
