Flin Flon RCMP and members of the community held a walk yesterday morning. Organizer Corporal Ray Hamilton says it was to focus on an issue the RCMP take very seriously. He explains the idea of the walk is to raise awareness of violence against women and children in the community and across the province. He adds some stats he was reading show 77 percent of Canadians are aware of a female who’s been sexually or physically assaulted and now the awareness is to get people talking and report those incidents.
The walk began at Pioneer Square, down Main Street, up Angel Avenue and down Hapnot Street back to Pioneer Square.
