There’s a new resource to learn more about Orange Shirt Day and the history of residential schools.

Last evening at 7:30 p.m. rolled into a ditch on the Alaska Highway running through Wonowon. The truck was hauling 60,000 litres of gasoline at the time so it was necessary to evacuate an area of 300 metres for safety.

The evacuated area included a worker camp of 200 people, a gas station, along with a few residences. All involved were evacuated to a local school while the highway was closed for 10 hours.

A Haz Mat team arrived on the scene early this morning to assess the situation of the leak. It is currently unknown how much fuel was spilled in the accident. The Ministry of Environment will assess any damage occurring from the incident.
