worldwide entertainment tvMore than 200 people marched in downtown Toronto including the NBA’s Raptors on Saturday (September 24th) in a renewed push for government action on gun violence in the wake of 302 shootings in the city so far this year.

The founder of Zero Gun Violence Movement, Louis March, says more action is needed to reduce gun violence, which he says has continued unabated in the city for months.

“Enough is enough,” March told CBC Toronto. “It’s a crazy type of violence. Innocent people are being killed and safe zones are now being breached.”

Evelyn Fox, founder of Communities for Zero Violence, says her son — Kiesingar Gunn — was hit by a stray bullet outside a club in Liberty Village on Sept. 11, 2016.

Six years later, Fox says “the person who killed him has not been held accountable. No witnesses have come forward who want to give my family justice or closure or even hold that person accountable.”

Toronto artist, Xentury Sam, says her boyfriend and his brother were victims of gun violence in 2012, and she was shot in 2019.

“I still have the bullet in my back. I lose loved ones and friends all the time,” Cowe-Tomlinson said, adding that she now works for the One by One Movement, which aims to decrease violence in Toronto.

“That’s why I’m here today: to support my team, the mothers who have lost their children, the people who have lost their lives, other people like me who are victims of senseless violence.”

Some in attendance said they had seen loved ones killed in the past few months.

“We came today to support everyone that has lost people — mothers, kids, everybody,” Jesiah Martin said.
