Niagara Falls to be Illuminated in Honour of Victims of the Residential School System
Niagara Falls, Ontario – The Niagara Falls Illumination Board will be illuminating both the Canadian Horseshoe and American Falls in orange tonight, this Friday June 25th, from 10:15 to 11:15pm in memory of the 751 Indigenous children discovered in unmarked graves at the site of a former residential school in Saskatchewan.
Niagara Falls was previously illuminated in orange on May 30 in memory of 215 Indigenous children discovered in a mass grave at a former residential school in Kamloops, British Columbia.
With the possibility that more of these tragic discoveries may occur in the weeks and months ahead, the Niagara Falls Illumination Board is exploring options to best recognize and honour the victims moving forward.
