Sully Movement Cancels Event and Expands Focus During Covid19

On his one year mark of protesting a group called The Sully Movement, founded by Rob Primerano joined Sully at the church in a show of support, and has returned each Sunday since. The movement has since expanded beyond protests, hosting free movie events, with special guest speakers like journalist Grant LeFleche with the goal of educating area residents of the scope of abuse in Niagara.
Primerano also created a group called Community Contributors where Primerano and O'Sullivan have advocated for prison reform, supported local governments in discarded syringe cleanups and advocacy messaging for homeless residents."We do all this to keep families safe," said O'Sullivan, "it would be hypocritical of us to say we want to keep families safe but then ask them to risk their health at an event. We felt it was best to postpone it. We still have the bridge lighting to look forward to."
The City Of Welland will be lighting their iconic bridge red to 'Stop Child Abuse' in support of all childhood sex abuse victims that night. "People will be able to see the bridge glowing from their homes so the message is still getting out there." said Primerano.
Although the bridge is being lit in support of sex abuse victims, the group plan to visit the bridge that evening to spread messages of good cheer to local area residents."We are thinking that with all the anxiety around Covid19 our focus the next little while should expand beyond sex abuse to use our platform to lift the community's spirit with messages of hope."
When asked if Covid19 may distract from a House Of Commons public reading of the petition, Daniela Siggia said, "Right now we appreciate the urgency of Covid19's impact on the safety of Canadian residents and our economy. I would never begrudge the government giving the safety of Canadians its full attention. We'll be here to continue our quest for accountability as soon as this is over. Right now the health of Canadians should be everyone's first priority."
