Why an orange shirt?  Orange Shirt day is a legacy of the St. Joseph Mission Residential School Commemoration Project that took place in Williams Lake, BC.  Former student Phyllis Webstad told her story of her first residential school experience when her shiny new orange shirt, bought by her grandmother to ease her granddaughter’s anxiety of leaving home, was taken away from her on the first day of school.
