Trekker passes through Cranbrook on cross-Canada journey
A Montreal man stopped in Cranbrook last week during his cross-Canada trek in the name of peace.
Normand Schmidt started walking from Vancouver on April 23 and hopes to make it to Montreal this year.
His journey through B.C. has taken longer than he expected, he said, because the people of B.C. are so nice and he ends up stopping to talk to people.
Schmidt said he decided to dedicate his life to walking to promote peace after watching a film about the Rwandan genocide.
He wants to encourage peace between countries, within countries, within communities and even within families.
