MLA Norm Letnick’s 5th Annual Spring Climb for Health & World Peace is April 6

The return of the Spring Climb for Health and World Peace has set its 2019 date.

Though its yearly run, MLA Letnick hopes this years climb will go further into embracing world peace.

“There is a lot of hate and violence in the world today and we owe it to ourselves and our children, both in Canada and around the world, to show that there is a better way,” said Letnick in a statement.

“A group picture celebrating our harmony in diversity can perhaps, just for a moment, offer to the world a different way forward.”

Letnick said that in light of the New Zealand tragedy, that community events and activities can promote peace.
