Downtown Regina is filled with paper hearts to raise awareness for domestic violence.
The “Hearts in the Park” campaign is being put on by the Circle Project, a group that provides family violence, alcohol and drug counseling to inner city individuals and families. The Circle Project says Saskatchewan has the highest rates of domestic violence in Canada, more than double the national rate.
The Hearts in the Park project invites anyone who knows someone who has been a victim of domestic violence to write their relationship with that person on a heart and hang it in Victoria Park.
The hearts will hang in the park until June 1, when they will be moved to Hill Tower 2 for two weeks.
