City hosting one of 14 Canadian solidarity events next weekend in peaceful protest of Trump's election and inauguration.

When women walk in Washington next weekend to peacefully protest Trump’s election, it’s hoped hundreds in Halifax will rally in solidarity.

Women’s March on Washington-Halifax happens Jan. 21 at Grand Parade. It’s one of 14 local solidarity events taking place across Canada at the same time as the Washington march.

“I think it’s important that we stand together with our sisters and brothers in America who are going to be facing some of the worst four years probably in most recent history under the Trump presidency,” said Halifax rally co-organizer Dawn Ferris.
