4 Indigenous people share why they won't be singing O Canada on July 1Breaking News
For Shane Henry, it used to be about donning the red and white to celebrate Canada on July 1, but this year — on Canada's 150th anniversary of Confederation — he's not feeling so patriotic.
"Putting a bunch of flags on my skin and jumping in praise saying, 'Oh, look at our great country and look at all that we've accomplished' — that part of it isn't so comfortable with me anymore," explained the University of Saskatchewan PhD student and researcher with the Saskatoon Tribal Council.
The reformed "Canada Day nut" said it wasn't until he began working with different government organizations and non-profit groups that he realized what Canada Day really meant for his Indigenous community.
