The Greater Sudbury Police Service is advising the public of possible traffic disruptions on Sunday, Jan. 26, around 11 a.m. in the downtown core of Greater Sudbury.

Members from “Solidarity with Wet’suwet’en” are planning a march leaving from the Courthouse at 155 Elm St. The expected route for this march will affect the flow traffic on the following roadways: Elm Street, Paris Street, Brady Street, and Minto Street.

It is anticipated that a Round Dance may occur at the intersections for a brief few minutes.

The walk will begin at 11 a.m. and is expected to conclude around 1 p.m. at Tom Davies Square.

Motorists may encounter traffic delays in the downtown core during that time.

The Greater Sudbury Police Service respects everyone’s right to freedom of expression and peaceful assembly.

The role of the Greater Sudbury Police Service is to ensure public safety and to keep the peace. Activities may interrupt the normal flow of traffic. Officers will be present during the march, working with organizers to ensure the safe and orderly movement of traffic.

Motorists are encouraged to be patient when travelling in the Downtown core this morning and to be respectful of all pedestrians. Motorists may want to consider alternate routes when navigating through the Downtown core between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. on Jan. 26.
