A few dozen individuals paraded down the streets of Winnipeg Sunday in the Freedom Walk.
The 4,600-kilometre walk is a nationwide movement to bring awareness to victims’ rights and the Journey for Justice Campaign. The campaign educates Canadians on the impact of victimization from crime, abuse and bullying.
The Freedom Walk Team is a group of five males; two civilians, two Calgary police officers and one RCMP officer. They have chosen to spend two months of their own time walking across Canada to share their message that the impact of being victimized lasts far beyond the initial event.
The walk began at the Manitoba legislature before heading north on Broadway and eventually west down Portage Avenue to end at Polo Park Shopping Centre.
