The Council of Canadians Kamloops chapter took part in the 40th annual walk for peace in their city yesterday.
Back in February, Kamloops News reported, “Organizer Anita Strong says it will be a celebration of the work done by local peace, social, and environmental advocates. ‘It is heartening to see so many local groups supporting this year’s walk’, said Strong, chair of the local chapter of the Council of Canadians. ‘Many are drawn to the event to oppose the Canadian government which stubbornly continues to wage war, degrade environmental protections, and promote inequality.'”
Yesterday, the MC for the event Barbara Nederpel commented, “I think today was the biggest and the best Peace Walk yet! Thank you to everyone who volunteered and joined us at the event and on the walk. People were joining us along the route, honking and waving too!”
The Council of Canadians chapter has hosted the peace walk for the past sixteen years.
