The Crown corporation bought the T-shirts from a non-Indigenous company
Manitoba Liquor and Lotteries is facing criticism over how it purchased its Orange Shirt Day T-shirts after it came to light the Crown corporation used a non-Indigenous company to produce them and is not planning to make any donations to Indigenous non-profits.
Earlier this year, the Crown corporation put out a bid looking for a company to print about 9,000 T-shirts – 7,000 shirts for their various festivals, plus an additional 2,000 for Orange Shirt Day.
In April, it was awarded to a Winnipeg-based, non-Indigenous, custom printing company that CBC News decided not to name.
A spokesperson for the Crown corporation said it followed procurement guidelines.
