Lions share message of truth and reconciliation on Sept. 24

VANCOUVER — At their matchup on September 24 at BC Place, professional football players from the BC Lions and the Saskatchewan Roughriders will be wearing orange spatting as part of their uniforms in recognition and respect for Canada’s first-ever National Day for Truth and Reconciliation – a newly established federal statutory holiday that will be held September 30. Since 2013, this date has been marked as Orange Shirt Day in recognition of survivors of Canada’s Indian Residential School System and their families.

Nice initiative. I'm looking forward to seeing this new rendition of the Lions logo.

Very BC Native looking art work and I’m ok with it for one day. I do not want to see a logo change… as the last one almost killed me.
