WINNIPEG — Thousands of peopleĀ in Winnipeg showed solidarity with men and women worldwide taking part in the Women’s March Saturday.

It was a sight many likely had never seen inside Portage Place Shopping Centre on Saturday afternoon. What started as a crowd of hundreds, quickly grew to thousands inside the shopping centre as everyone was welcomed.

The crowd was so large that hundreds piled on to the streets outside waiting for the march to begin.
