March of the thousand umbrellas

by Archives October 6, 2009

Thousands of umbrella toting marchers filled Ste-Catherine St. on Thursday for Centraide’s “March of 1,000 Umbrellas.” The march began at McGill College Ave. and ended at the Complexe Desjardins. It kicked off the 2009 fundraising campaign for Centraide, which provides help to needy families, and promotes social and community involvement. The umbrellas are supposed to be a symbolic reminder of the vulnerability of impoverished and isolated families. But they did come in handy in the rain.
