The West End community is coming together today for its annual March Against Violence.
The march is in response to a number of violent incidents which have plagued the West Central area in recent years and a direct response to more recent acts of violence.
“We want to continue to make a stand that our community will not tolerate any form of violence, and to let other neighbouring communities knows that there is a lot more to our neighbourhoods than what you hear in the media,” said Cortney Sinclair of the Spence Neighbourhood Association.
The march will begin at 6 p.m. near Central Park at the intersection of Edmonton Street and Sargent Avenue.
Continues west on Sargent Ave. to Langside St.; south on Langside St. to Ellice Ave.; west on Ellice Ave. to Toronto St.; north on Toronto St. to Sargent Ave.; west on Sargent Ave. to Home St.; south on Home St. to Ellice Ave.; east on Ellice Ave. and turn south on Langside St. to Magnus Eliason Recreation Centre.
A free community feast with entertainment will be held at the recreation centre (430 Langside Street) following the march.
