In March, 2013, Raise the Rates organized a Walk for Welfare Justice, walking the 15 kilometres across Vancouver from Christy Clark’s office in Point Grey to Adrian Dix’s office at Joyce Skytrain. Over 100 people took part for at least part of the walk. We delivered an open letter to both leaders calling for welfare rates to be raised.
Along the way we held quick soap box rallies at several main intersections and thousands of flyers were given out and many people honked their horns in support or said well done to us on the streets.
