Walk together for a better world

On Saturday, April 29th, local groups including the Council of Canadians – Thunder Bay are organizing a walk from Hillcrest Park to Waverley Park (starting at 2 pm) to re-affirm and celebrate our humanity.

Wear a costume, sing a song, carry a banner, support an art project, or just come as you are!

People wishing to walk with the Council of Canadians can meet at the big yellow banner at 1:30 p.m.

Will you join us?

This will be a family-friendly event, and all welcome. The walk will take place rain or shine, and St. Paul’s United Church has graciously offered us space to connect should the weather not cooperate.

If you are part of a group that would like to participate or interested in helping out with organization, please contact Julee Boan (Ontario Nature) at Hosted by Ontario Nature and Environment North.
