Rally and Solidarity March for Gun Control in Castlegar this week

There's a Solidarity March for US Gun Control in Castlegar tomorrow, the date coinciding with the National School Walkout that's happening in the States to end gun violence.

Deb McIntosh is one of the organizers in Castlegar.

She says it's not about a ban on guns, It’s about bringing awareness to the fact that certain guns are not needed in the public stream.

They also want kids to know that they're making a difference.

She says they also want our kids to know that they have people out there that they can talk to.

McIntosh says she was astounded to know that the local school district has lock down drills, not just fire drills.

The Solidarity March will start at the Pioneer Arena at 4:25 on Wednesday and end at City Hall with a rally.
