NORTH GRENVILLE, ON - Mayor Nancy Peckford issued the following statement on Green Shirt Day.

On behalf of myself and Council, we join with communities across Canada to declare April 7, 2022 Green Shirt Day in support of organ donor awareness and registration.

Council would like to offer our sincere thanks to Ethan Bos, who continues to raise awareness on this important day and has presented to Council for the past few years, requesting that we declare the day. In 2020, Council declared Green Shirt Day in perpetuity.

Green Shirt Day was created to honour, remember, and recognize the victims and families of the 2018 Humboldt Broncos Hockey Team bus crash in rural Saskatchewan, where sixteen people were killed.

Green Shirt Day honours Defenseman Logan Boulet, one of the people who died. Logan was a registered organ donor, and as a result, his parents were able to donate his organs that went on to save six lives.

In a phenomenon that has come to be known as the Logan Boulet Effect, over 150,000 Canadians registered as organ donors in the weeks following the Humboldt crash in 2018. Thanks to the Logan Boulet Effect, over 325,000 people in Canada have since signed their organ card.

In Canada, almost 90% of Canadians say they support organ donation, but only 23% have registered their intent to donate. 

Green is also the official colour of organ and tissue donation, symbolizing the hope organ donors provide to patients in need.

On April 7, 2022 Council will wear green in honour of the Humboldt Tragedy and encourage everyone to register to become organ donors.

Please consider being an organ and tissue donor. Visit www.BeADonor.ca to learn more and to register.
