Delorme said it’s important to wear orange on Canada Day for solidarity.
“Many advocates and people in my community, we always talk about how Canada was built on oppression, on racism, on genocide. It was my people, the Indigenous people of Turtle Island – what we know as Canada — that shed blood and died from disease and genocide and were starved and beaten.
“This was based on a historical Canadian government and this is a significant day for the nation to celebrate, and right now it’s just not a time of celebration. Our people have been talking for many, many years about these unmarked graves and children that were mistreated and buried, it’s just now our ancestors are coming back from the past and saying ‘we’re here,’ so Canada Day is not a celebration this year.”

Delorme asked residents to use their social media to raise awareness on Canada Day.
“I sometimes have an issue with the smiling and the selfies because it is kind of a sombre moment, but at least signifying in some way by wearing orange, taking those selfies.”
Delorme said residents can also raise awareness by putting a solar light on their yard like the ones used to mark graves at Cowessess First Nation, or a teddy bear or orange balloons. She added this is one “gentle” way for residents to acknowledge what the Indigenous community is going through.
