#Justice4BlackLives Niagara Falls rally attracts thousands


Thousands of people gathered on Victoria Avenue in Niagara Falls for the #Justice4BlackLives rally.

The rally was held in solidarity with the Black community following the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis by police.

The rally included just over 8 minutes of silence, the length of time former Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin held his knee on Floyd's neck, killing him.

Niagara Regional Police Chief Bryan MacCulloch joined the rally to support the cause.

He spoke about it with Matt Holmes this morning. Click here to hear the interview.
