Women's March Supporters Come Together In SA And Revelstoke
About 40 protesters gathered at Salmon Arm's Ross Street Plaza on Saturday, in support of the Women's March on Washington.
Among them was City Councillor Louise Wallace, who says that many Canadians spent Saturday displaying their freedoms as members of a Democratic society "Peaceful protest has always been very important, and the point is not that it's going to change what Trump does or doesn't do, the point is that it changes the people who took the time to protest."
Reports out of Revelstoke state that about 50-60 people turned up for their Saturday protest.
Councillor Wallace, who's also an instructor at Okanagan College, says she made a point Friday to provide her students with their own copies of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms.
It's believed that over three million people took part in Saturday's protests across the U.S, making it the largest single-day demonstration in American history.
