The third annual Walk of Hope began in Prince Albert Friday morning.

Organizer Conrad Burns began his walk at City Hall in Prince Albert and will make a 450 kilometre trek over the next 7 days to the Provincial Legislature in Regina.

Burns says he was inspired to do these walks because of the stories he has heard from the women in his life.

“I have realized I can’t be there for every step of it, but I can show support by doing something like the walk of hope,” said Burns.

The walk is a part of the Rise Up against violence social media campaign that began this week.  Burns says the campaign has been going great so far.

“We are getting a lot of community involvement and as it goes one we are getting more exposure and things are starting to snowball,” said Burns.

“It’s good to see ‘Rise Up’ showing up on people’s hands on Facebook and everywhere else.”

People are encouraged to write the words ‘Rise Up’ on their hands use #RiseUpStopAbuse when posting to social media.

Burns also says people are welcome to join him on the walk.  While he did say he is glad the sun is shining, he is hoping for a few clouds to prevent sunburn.

A school on a Saskatchewan First Nation is reopening a month after vandals trashed it.

Yellow Quill First Nation closed the school last month after vandals smashed door and windows and set off fire extinguishers, leaving a huge mess.

Chief John Machiskinic said the damage was about $200,000 and insurance covered the repairs and cleanup.

The chief said during the closure, students in Grades 1 to 5 were bused to nearby Rose Valley to resume classes, while others attended class at a hall and a local clinic.

Machiskinic said the Saskatoon Tribal Council assisted in getting every student looked after.

The school is set to open Monday, and the band council says they may extend the school year a couple of weeks to make up for any lost time.
