Action expected to interrupt downtown traffic
The march is part of a global day of action. Participants will leave N'Swakamok Native Friendship Centre at 5 p.m. and travel east on Elm Street and then south on Elgin Street.
The march will then head north on Shaughnessy Street, west on Van Horne Street and north on Minto Street.
Participants will then proceed east on Larch Street and north on Paris Street in the northbound lanes only. They will then travel west on Elm Street in the westbound lanes. The group will conclude their march at the N’Swakamok Native Friendship Centre at approximately 5:45 p.m.
“The GSPS respects the right of everyone to freedom of expression and peaceful assembly,” said the service in a news release. “Activities may interrupt the normal flow of traffic. Members of the Greater Sudbury Police Service will be present, working with organizers to ensure the safe and orderly movement of traffic and march participants.”
To assist in minimizing the impact to our citizens, anyone who plans on being in this area during the above time frame is encouraged to take an alternate route, if possible.
