This Wednesday, a Private Members Bill goes through second reading in the House of Commons. It calls for National Aboriginal Day on June 21st to be declared a national statutory holiday. The MP for a riding in Northern Saskatchewan is the force behind the bill. Georgina Jolibois says the idea arose from the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s idea to make the day a stat holiday. She says, in the last federal election, both the NDP and the Liberals talked about nation-to-nation relationships and this would be a step in that direction.
