HANDS ACROSS THE BRIDGE — Some 150 people gathered for Hands Across the Bridge Oct. 17 in Saskatoon, marking the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty. Although participants did not manage to span the entire Broadway Bridge, they offered passing cars a visible sign of solidarity with the poor on both sides of the river, said Vanessa Charles of the Saskatoon Ant-Poverty Coaliton. “Our brothers and sisters are living in poverty on both sides of the bridge,” she said. “Rents on the east side are the same as rents on the west side: unreachable.”
