Flags will remain at half-mast until agreement is reached with Indigenous leaders: Trudeau

  Flags will remain at half-mast until agreement is reached with Indigenous leaders: Trudeau Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau said he plans to keep Canadian flags on federal buildings at half-mast in honour of the residential school students who never came home until Indigenous communities and their leaders decide when it's appropriate to raise them again. "I think Canadians have seen with horror those unmarked graves across the country and realize that what happened decades ago isn't part of our history. It is an irrefutable part of our present," Trudeau said.

The special will also include musical tributes and ceremonies in Indigenous communities.

APTN will also have a full day of programming to honour the new statutory holiday, which is also known as Orange Shirt Day and is meant to reflect on the tragic history and ongoing legacy of residential schools.

A specially curated collection titled "National Day for Truth and Reconciliation" will also be available on APTN lumi, the streaming service of the Aboriginal Peoples Television Network.
