For the past several years Carleton Place has been host to one of the most well-attended rural Take Back the Night Marches in Canada. Even on the soggiest of nights local residents turn out with their banners and noise-makers in record numbers. All to demand that a womanʼs right to walk our streets safely be upheld.
This year’s event will be held on Thursday, September 25th. The gathering begins at 6:30 in the park behind Carleton Place town hall, with the rally and march set to begin at 7pm. This is a family friendly event for all to join!! We hope to see you there!! For inquiries, contact the Public Education Coordinator at 613-257-3469 ext 63. or visit www.lcih.org/events
