As requested by the Canadian Cancer Society’s British Columbia (BC) and Yukon Division, at the regular council meeting on March 26, Fernie City Council proclaimed April as Daffodil Month and April 27 as Daffodil Day in Fernie.

This spring the society is asking Canadians across the country to wear the daffodil pin to support people who have been affected by cancer and to remember those lost to the disease.

The daffodil pin is a bright and hopeful symbol of support that lets people know that no-one faces cancer alone.

The Canadian Cancer Society continues to be a leader in funding outstanding cancer research, undertaking cancer prevention initiatives and delivering support services to people with cancer and their families.
