Day 5 of UBCM 2016

Today is the final day of the 2016 Union of BC Muncipalities Convention.

This morning is the final day of Resolution Debates along with Speeches from Peter Fassbender (Minister of Community, Sport and Cultural Development) and Amarjeet Sohi (Federal Infrastructure Minister)

Today is also Orange Shirt Day so lots of delegates, I expect, will be wearing their orange shirts to honour those who went through Residential Schools, both living and not.  I will be thinking today of my Alternate Director, Phyllis Webstad, whose story inspired this day...

The convention adjourns at noon today and then delegates will be heading home to their various communities ...

Have  a great day,
