Local municipal officials and federal election candidates have been invited to attend a rally on Saturday at Gellatly Bay in West Kelowna in memory of the 100 sled dogs that were killed by their owner in Whistler.

Rally organizer Sarah Parson said social media has played a large role in recruiting members to a grassroots group that wants to see Canada’s animal welfare legislation improved.

The rally will take place from 2 to 3:30 p.m. Saturday.

Similar vigils will be held in every Canadian province along with six other countries on the same day, April 23.
