(Montreal) Thousands of people rallied in Quebec on Sunday to demand from the government the resumption of team sports that have disrupted the epidemic and the need for youth health.
“Our kids need to move,” “Our kids need to breathe,” or “Part of the sporting solution” are the signs announced by participants, including many families, according to local media.
The “March for the Restart of Sports” initiative was organized on the initiative of young student footballer Isaac Popin, who called on social networks with the slogan “Let our players take over, practice their sport”.
More than 5,000 people announced their intention to take part in the event on their Facebook page, calling on the government to “show the youth that for their physical health and mental balance, it’s time to start their sport again.”
Several athletes, including Mughal ski champion Michael Kingsbury, supported the young man’s initiative.
Prime Minister Franకోois Legalt will soon unveil his progressive decontamination plan in the field of sports.
There have been more than 290,000 coronavirus cases and 10,472 deaths on Sunday since the pandemic began in Quebec a year ago, almost half of the deaths reported so far in Canada.
