Mayor Greg Dionne has proclaimed April 7th as Green Shirt Day in the City of Prince Albert in honour of Logan Boulet, a 21 year old Broncos player who lost his life in last year’s tragic bus accident. Logan’s parents, Toby and Bernadine, honoured his wish to be an organ donor on April 7, 2018, and his donation saved the lives of six Canadians.
City staff have been invited to participate in this important day on Monday, April 8th by wearing a green shirt to work. City Council has also been invited to wear green at the upcoming April 8th City Council meeting.
“I invite all residents in Prince Albert to participate with us on this day and to consider signing up as an organ donor,” said Mayor Greg Dionne. “Sign the card, put it in your wallet and talk to your family.”
Green Shirt Day honours the legacy of Logan’s story and has also inspired more than 100,000 Canadians to become registered organ donors, a movement now referred to as the Logan Boulet Effect. The ultimate goal of Green Shirt Day is for Canadians to share their organ donation wishes with their families.
