Wear Red Canada Day
Mayor David Bailey proclaimed February 13 as Wear Red Canada Day in the County of Brant. Wear Red Canada Day is celebrated annually to raise awareness for all Canadians, but especially Canadian women, to be mindful, curious, and proactive in the management of their heart health and wellness.
Heart disease is the number one killer of women worldwide and the leading cause of premature death for Canadian women, a fact unknown to many women and their healthcare providers. The Canadian Women’s Heart Health Alliance organizes the event across Canada as they strive to see better prevention, diagnosis, and care and fewer women dying prematurely from heart disease.
