Date & Time: January 21, 2017 from 12:00 pm – 2:00 pm
Locations: Queen’s Park to City Hall
Length: 1.7km. Estimated time: 2 hours.
Begins at Queen’s Park at 12:00 pm. Rally in this space for approximately half hour with inspiring speakers and local musicians. Then commence march and head south to the U.S. consulate, from there we will head east to City Hall/Nathan Phillips Square. The march will end at City Hall with one more speaker.
There will be three accessibility vans on the day of the march. One will be for people using wheelchairs or scooters, and the other two are for people with limited mobility and have seats. The accessibility vans will be parked near the stage where the speakers and sound system are located. During the rally the vans are parked near the stage so those requiring space to rest/ sit-in during the rally have access.
Once we commence the march anyone requiring use of the accessibility vans will need to be in the vehicle. For safety reasons, we may not be able to stop during the march to pick up additional passengers. Should you need assistance during the march speak with a marshal. The accessibility vans will follow the march route and end at City Hall, approximately two hours later, and afterwards the accessibility vehicles will drive those back to Queen’s Park as required.
