As the sun set over Quebec City on Sept. 30, the Quebec government lit the National Assembly building in orange in recognition of the first National Day of Truth and Reconciliation. The holiday is also known as Orange Shirt Day, in honour of British Columbia residential school survivor Phyllis Webstad, whose orange shirt, a gift from her grandmother, was confiscated when she arrived at school in 1973.
