Stz'uminus, Ladysmith councils respectfully remove red dresses

The Stz'uminus First Nation and Town of Ladysmith leadership teams met this afternoon to respectfully remove the red dresses and honour the Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls and Two Spirit People they serve to remember.
As we safely store these dresses until next year, let us all reflect on the increased awareness brought to this issue in recent weeks and the opportunity to learn as a community how we can continue to come together as one.
If you donated a red dress and would like it returned, please contact City Hall by emailing or calling 250-245-6400.
