Happy Father’s Day, Aboriginal Day and Arrival of Summer

Sunday, June 21, 2015 @ 3:55 AM

Prince George, B.C. – A busy day in Prince George with it being Father’s Day, National Aboriginal Day, the Cruisin’ Classics Show ‘n Shine and, summer officially arriving at 9:38 this morning.

Today will have the most daylight of any day of the year.

The Farmer’s Almanac says the sun will rise 4:38 in Prince George and set at 9:47 this evening. That means there should be 17 hours and eight minutes of daylight today.

And if you want to get your first day of summer/Father’s Day, Aboriginal Day off to a hearty start, the Railway and Forestry Museum is serving up a pancake breakfast. Breakfast is being served from 10 this morning to 11:30 and tickets are available at the door.


Happy Fathers Day to all you fathers out there, an even more special day if you happen to be an Aboriginal father, as it is National Aboriginal Day.

The historic day has arrived, where the Lheidli T’enneh flag now flys on the winds of change, and the Lheidli T’enneh Memorial Park comes into existance, ushering in a new era, as we move away from racism and intolerance, and towards a mutually respectful future between our Aboriginal communities and the PG community at large.

Was this the right time and place for a positive change? You bet, the racially motivated hate crime at that church in South Carolina shows us that we need to be a more open and tolerant society. This is indeed a happy, joyful, and historic day, peace out and enjoy it everyone.

I agree Sophie..would be nice if the natives showed tolerance to the rest of us.

I think renaming Fort George park to that new name is showing over tollerance. Should of named a portion of the park, like around the cemetary area, that name and left the overall park the original name.
