April 7 Proclaimed Green Shirt Day In Saskatchewan
Green Shirt Day was created by the Boulet family and will be recognized across Canada, with the hopes of inspiring people to fully consider organ and tissue donation and to discuss the issue with their family members. Sunday will be the first anniversary of Boulet’s passing, following the tragic Humboldt Broncos bus crash. He had shared his wishes with family prior to the accident, and his life-giving donation saved six lives.
