NDP MP Says Stat Holiday To Remember Residential Schools Is Needed

Northern Quebec NDP MP Romeo Saganash says that he is hopeful that the Trudeau Government will follow through on creating a new statutory holiday to remember residential schools. 



Saganash spoke to Arctic Radio News during a recent visit to Thompson, and said that while he is hopeful that it will happen, the Liberals have a track record of not delivering on very important promises to Indigenous people. 


He said that as a former residential school attendee/ survivor, Canadians need the holiday to learn and educate themselves about residential schools. 


Reports came from Ottawa two months ago that a new stat holiday was in the works and would be announced shortly, but nothing has followed as of yet.
